A clear history and thought-provoking evaluation of the fundamental meaning of democracy with particular emphasis on European experience with democratic policies. Why America must hold social democracies in equal favor with more capitalist democracies, how far democracies can tolerate the enemies of democracy, what are the real choices between democracy in all its various forms and totalitarianism in all its guises—these are the questions which Alf Ross analyzes and illuminates. Why Democracy? originates from the author’s experience of and reflection upon the German occupation of Denmark.
