Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,


The articles in this issue of Democratic Theory range from an investigation of civic-political and cognitive participation as they play out in democratic theory to an analysis of the power of spectatorship in the democratic world. An interview with John B. Min and Jason Stanley on propaganda in liberal democratic societies follows. This issue concludes with a series of research notes.
