Twas the Night Before Christmas

An adaptation of the much-loved Christmas story by Clement C. Moore, celebrating the magic and wonder of Christmas Eve. Beautiful illustrations bring this classic poem to life. The perfect family story for the holiday season.

Churchill had more reason than most to rue the power of democracy, having been thrown out of office after leading Britain to victory in 1945. Democracy, when viewed from above, has always been a fickle master; from below it is a powerful but fragile friend.

Most books on democracy focus on political theory and analysis, in a futile attempt to define democracy. Of The People, By The People takes the opposite approach, telling the stories of the different democracies that have come into existence during the past two and half millennia.

From Athens to Rhaetia, Jamestown to Delhi, and Putney to Pretoria, the book shows how democratic systems are always a reflection of the culture and history of their birthplaces, and come about through seizing fleeting opportunities.

Democracy can only be understood through the fascinating and inspiring stories of the peoples who fought to bring it about.
