Professor Stoker's book makes a very powerful argument very illuminating of the true meaning and functioning of politics' - Steven Van de Walle, Local Government Studies. the strength of Why Politics Matters is the breadth of the author's concerns, the humanity and measured judgements that inform his analysis, and, above all, his willingness to declare that the customer is not only not always right but also prone to more than a little hypocrisy in writing off those who do currently get their.

Achieving mass democracy was the great triumph of the twentieth century. Learning to live with it will be the greatest achievement of the twenty-first century. A rising tide of discontent is posing a major crisis for systems of mass democracy: the evidence is clear to see in reduced turnout and party membership and in opinion surveys. The failures of politicians have played their part but, Gerry Stoker argues, equally important are the dysfunctional political stances and styles adopted by many citizens.

Stoker indeed makes several references to Crick's work. They are both concerned to explain what politics is for and what it can achieve. They both want us to understand the importance of the collective and the public sphere, and the inevitability of conflict and dispute in governing that sphere, and hence in the essentially contested and difficult character of political affairs. The primary change in the past four decades with which Stoker knows he has to grapple is what one might sum up most succinctly as the replacement of the citizen by the customer.
