Find out why Plato hated democracy, and why even political theorists who were sympathetic to popular government, including Machiavelli, Hobbes, Madison, Adams, and Homer Simpson, had serious doubts about whether democracy could ever be made to work properly. Join Political Science and International Relations professor Del Dickson for a freewheeling discussion of his most recent book, “The People’s Government: An Introduction to Democracy.”
