A remarkable study of civic traditions.'

A remarkable study of civic traditions.' -- Steven Lukes, The Times Literary Supplement


A great work of social science, worthy to rank alongside de Tocqueville, Pareto, and Weber.... If [Putnam's] claims about the essential conditions of successful democracy are correct (and they almost certainly are), then politicians and political scientists alike will have to think again about democracy's prospects in Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. -- The Economist



It is rare that one comes across a classic in political science, yet in Robert D. Putnam's "Making Democracy Work" we undoubtedly have one. . . . Mr. Putnam's seminal work addresses in a rigorously empirical way the central question of democratic theory: What makes democratic institutions stable and effective? . . . [His] findings strikingly corroborate the political theory of civic humanism, according to which strong and free government depends on a virtuous and public-spirited citizenry--on an undergirding civic community. . . . One crucial implication of "Making Democracy Work" is that feeble and corrupt government, operating against the background of a weak and uncivic society, tends not to foster the creation of wealth, but rather to renew poverty.

Seminal, epochal, path-breaking: All those overworked words apply to a book that, to make the point brazenly, is a "Democracy in America" for our times.--David L. Kirp "The Nation "
