Democracy Where and Where Not
by Christopher Gray

Democracy looks like a good thing everywhere. If it is the right way to govern some kind of human grouping, then it belongs everywhere else, too. This book examines how true that presumption is. The book develops a grid for thinking about democratic governance, namely, a theory of institutions. This theory upholds the reality of groups and defines them by their purposes. Next, the book describes the main concepts that are used in the argument, namely, democracy, groups, equality, and law. At last, the institutional method applies these concepts to the important human groupings and reaches surprising conclusions on whether democracy belongs everywhere. These groupings are acquaintance and friendship, marriage and family, neighborhood and nation, commercial and cultural voluntary groups, state, and transcendent community.
