9 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 494 libraries worldwide
"Democracy's Edge is a rousing battle cry that we can - and must - act now. From Jefferson to Eisenhower, presidents from both parties have warned us of the danger of letting a closed, narrow group of business and government officials concentrate power over our lives. Yet today, a small and unrepresentative group of people is making vital decisions for all of us." "But this crisis is only a symptom, Frances Moore Lappe argues. It's a symptom of thin democracy, something done to us or for us, not by or with us. Such democracy is always at risk of being stolen by private interests or extremist groups, left and right."
