The renowned political scholars who contribute to this volume outline both the theory and practice of so-called extra-formal democracy, wherein societal governance is more accurately described as a network activity and citizens, politicians, public administrators and other professionals act together on issues or problems that are defined as public. This new and complex form of democracy--explored here in three unique settings: the United States, the Netherlands, and Demark--is increasingly regarded as an achievable vision for a multi-faceted theory of government.
