The Shadow of Unfairness

A Plebeian Theory of Liberal Democracy

Jeffrey Edward Green

  • Confronts plutocracy as a permanent feature of any liberal-democratic regime
  • Shows how ordinary citizens experience democracy in second-class ways
  • Introduces numerous concepts to the democratic lexicon -- "the shadow of unfairness," "plebeianism," "reasonable envy," "principled vulgarity," "extrapoliticism," "manyness," and "remove" -- meant to advance the understanding and pursuit of contemporary liberal democracy
