The Eyes of the People

Democracy in an Age of Spectatorship

Jeffrey Edward Green

  • Imports the notion of the "gaze" to democratic theory
  • Offers an account of democracy that focuses on the everyday structure of political experience and approaches democracy from the position of the political spectator.
  • Explores democratic theory that is relevant for democracy as it is lived today: in polities of enormous size, complexity, diversity, inequality, and technological mediatization
