The Public Sphere

by Mr. Hallvard Moe

The Public Sphere Synopsis

The idea of the public sphere as the space where citizens come together to deliberate on issues of common concern and to critique and influence the government has been one of the most influential and contested concepts since the beginnings of debates on the constitution of democracy. It remains central to contemporary issues such as the democratic potential of the internet, the challenges posed by the resurgence of fundamentalisms, and the possibilities for a post-national, cosmopolitan, political order in the age of globalization. This four volume major reference collection is a 'must-have' guide to the idea of the public sphere, its history, the ongoing struggles over its meaning and importance to democracy, and its continuing relevance to emerging issues. Volume One: Discovering the Public Sphere Volume Two: The Political Public Sphere Volume Three: The Cultural Public Sphere Volume Four: The Future of the Public Sphere
