"This new edition adds to the original volume the deliberations thereon of the Royal Commission on the Reform of the House of Lords and the reaction in the press." -- Stewart Rayment Liberator "[The Athenian Option, A People's Parliament and A Citizen Legislature] raise important issues for the future of our democracy. Their appearance is a sign that the public philosophy which has for so long governed our political arrangements has become outworn." -- Vernon Bogdanor Times Literary Supplement "Well-presented and argued works and I recommend them ['Athenian Option' and 'A People's Parliament'] to anyone with an interest in democratic governance... The use of the lot in the ways discussed in these books merits more careful consideration than it has received to date." -- Andrew Blick Political Quarterly
