Description: We no longer carry this amazing book, as used copies are expensive.

Drawing from years of experience and study, John Gastil offers a variety of solutions to the problems commonly faced by small, democratic groups. He thoroughly explores the dynamics of practicing democracy, including the relationship between speaking rights and listening responsibilities; the importance of full access to information and agenda setting; and ways to practice democracy in personal, family and neighborhood life. Throughout, he enriches his suggestions with detailed descriptions of the dynamics within a cooperative grocery store. To help readers choose the democratic structure most appropriate to their group, the book also surveys the full range of democratic processes - including consensus, majority rule, and proportional outcomes.
