A Theory of Militant Democracy examines how pro-democratic forces can safeguard representative government from anti-democratic groups. By allowing citizens who do not share democratic values to participate, democracies place themselves in jeopardy; but denying antidemocrats the right to participate may also conflict with democratic ideals. In the book, I outline a set principles for determining when one may reasonably refuse rights of participation, and I defend this theory by exploring real-world examples, ranging from the far right British Nationalist Party to Turkey’s Islamist Welfare Party to
America’s Democratic Party during Reconstruction.
