Fugitive Democracy and Other Essays, edited by Professor Nicholas Xenos, has been published

Professor Nicholas Xenos was the editor for the recently published book Fugitive Democracy and Other Essays. The essays, written by political theorist Sheldon S. Wolin, offer a unique interpretation of democracy and pull from the work of a number of celebrated political theorists. Sheldon S. Wolin was professor emeritus of politics at Princeton University. Fugitive Democracy brings together Wolin's most important essays, including "Political Theory as a Vocation" and the eponymous "Fugitive Democracy". The essays chosen demonstrate Wolin's scholarship and comprehensive understanding of politics. The topics explored include power, modernization, inequality, and political revolutions. While Wolin wrote to address the political issues of his time, Fugitive Democracy showcases the still relevant and universal elements of his work.
