I've been a fan of Tom Atlee's for years. He paints a vision
not of some distant, ideal democracy but of here-and-now practices
showing us what's possible in our immediate future. In The
Tao of Democracy he describes how we really can
use citizen dialogue and deliberation powerfully to solve our
common problems and meet deep human needs. What an important
gift for our small, challenged planet!
author of Diet for a Small Planet
The Tao of Democracy provides clear evidence that
we already have the resources and wisdom we need to confront
even the most difficult challenges. It calls on us to access
our collective intelligence to create the futures we want rather
than being forced to live with the futures we get.

Tom Atlee breaks lots of new ground with a highly intelligent,
original proposal for reinvigorating democracy in a manner that
is fully consistent with the emerging global wisdom society.
