Democracy and the Politics of the Extraordinary
An error occurred, please try again. Like New: A book that looks new but has been read. Why is it important for democratic theory to rethink the question of its beginnings? Kalyvas explores a democratic politics of the extraordinary that integrates the 'how', 'when', and 'by whom' a constitutional government is created, in order to enlarge our understanding of democracy, popular sovereignty, and political freedom and to rethink afresh the possibility of constitutional democracy with a radical intent.
Despite their own skepticism about mass democracies, Kalyvas creatively uses their insights about the category of the extraordinary and the politics of founding to develop a highly original theory of democracy with radical intent. His interpretations are fresh and thought provoking. This is an exciting and major theoretical contribution to rethinking of radical democratic politics. Bernstein, New School for Social Research, ' Kalyvas excels in his depth and insight into the work of the three scholars he has studied Central to Kalyvas' endeavor are iconoclastic readings of Weber, Schmitt, and Arendt as theorists of origins.
In opposition to Agamben and his followers, Kalyvas reads Carl Schmitt's notion of the exception or the extraordinary as the condition of possibility for popular sovereignty, the moment when the people emerge - become visible - as the constituent power that determines the form of political life.
Schmitt's Constitutional Theory, then, serves Kalyvas as the challenge to democratic theory to think 'the people' not just as the origin of the constitution and not just as the dutiful liberal citizen within the constituted order, but as the slumbering yet ever-present sovereign that collectively manifests its legitimate power outside of legal channels in the public life of the community. In deeply thoughtful readings of Weber, Schmitt, and Arendt, Kalyvas presses us to rethink not only how it is that new beginnings are possible but also how the 'revolutionary spirit' can be sustained in the course of normal everyday politics.
Relocating the critical political energy associated with the extraordinary event of revolution in the everyday life of self-reflective citizens, Kalyvas powerfully illuminates the creative political potential inherent in quotidian forms of democratic practice.
Kalyvas creatively and imaginatively arranges his Weberian-Schmittian-Arendtian elements into a compelling and coherent Kalyvasian understanding of democratic extraordinary politics. For anyone interested in politics--and everyone should be--Kalyvas provides a remarkable, original, and compelling understanding of the politics of the extraordinary.

It comes at a propitious moment in American politics. Most scholars have presented the enlarged sphere of executive discretion within the Bush presidency as a legal problem. Andreas Kalyvas sees it for what it is: a question deeply rooted in the politics of democracy, and specifically those 'extraordinary' moments outside the settled and normal. This book should be read by everyone concerned about the political constitution of the modern state.
