Political Parties, Their Organization And Activity In The Modern State by Maurice Duverger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Very interesting book. It is a good approach to review and analyse the principles of political parties’ functionality, their influence on state development and politics. There is a comprehensive overview of how in reality and not in dreams democracy and, for example, very frequently mentioned system of “checks and balances” work. Author is moderately humorous and that makes reading even more fascinating. It becomes clear why many people consider politics as obscenity. This opinion is based not on competence, but because politics is obscure to majority of people. Highly recommended to those who watch and read news, do things, make decisions, and is just merely interested in how everything works around.
