Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141804270, Audio Cassette)

The bestselling author of "The English" stirs it up again with a fascinating look at why governments fail to live up to our expectations. Despite its flaws, democracy is the least bad form of government we can imagine. It always starts so promisingly - the exhilaration of that moment in the tatty old polling booth as you make your 'X'. Yet it ends in disillusionment. Even the most apparently popular government will eventually fall. What is it about the business of politics which turns hope, vision and ambition to despair? Jeremy Paxman finds out.
