Being Political

Jack Corbett

University of Hawai'i Press

Investigates how politicians experience their candidate and representative functions. It does so by juxtaposing the mainstream literature that seeks to promote democratization and state strength with critical perspectives that advocate community participation. It concludes that politicians endorse both normative goals whilst their practice inevitably moves between the clear lines of accountability prized by promoters of legal rational institutions.
