Once again, I highly recommend First Democracy : The Challenge of an Ancient Idea, by Paul Woodruff.

If you want to know what a real democracy is (should be) like, and why our present so-called "democracy" is so screwed up, this will answer a lot of your questions. It's a fairly small book and very easy to read.

Is it biased? Yes. In favor of real democracy, as contrasted with what we have now and unwittingly call democracy.

Some folks don't think real democracy is a good idea, though.

By the way, some of it may really surprise you.
