David Runciman asks the big questions about politics: what is it, why do we need it and where, in these turbulent times, is it heading? From the gap between rich and poor to the impact of social media, via Machiavelli, Hobbes and Weber, Runciman's invaluable guide explains how life in Denmark became more comfortable than in Syria and explores the prospects of democracy.
