In this book Ove Korsgaard, the well-known scholar of democracy, examines how the concept people has changed throughout Danish history. Interpretations and uses of this notion have had dramatic influence on the building of the Danish society. The struggle of the people is the struggle for power in society.

Later the notion became a revolutionary key concept. The people was now regarded as sovereign. Today we are confronted with new questions.
