Research output: Contribution to journalShort ReviewOtherpeer-review


Ian Shapiro’s Politics Against Domination is both a refreshing and a disappointing book. On the one hand, it offers an impressive critical assessment of key contemporary national and global political issues, ranging from campaign funding to gerrymandering, and from military intervention to global inequality. Shapiro’s masterful knowledge of world history and politics, combined with the breadth of real-world examples he uses in order to support his arguments, makes this book an excellent example of well-crafted applied political theory.
