Come to a Book Discussion: The Myth of Mob Rule      
Tuesday, January 24, 2017, 04:30pm - 06:00pm
       
 
DESCRIPTION

Book coverAre mass publics irrational? Can they assess risk and exercise rational judgement on emotional policy issues such as crime? Many scholars conclude they cannot and argue that the power of democratic publics should thus be highly circumscribed. This book explores this claim in cross-national context and argues against this conventional view.

Join author Lisa L. Miller, Rutgers Political Science, and Michael Javen Fortner, School of Professional Studies and Graduate Center, CUNY, for a book discussion about The Myth of Mob Rule: Violent Crime and Democratic Politics (Oxford UP, 2016). Refreshments will be served.
