FROM THE PRAISE PAGE OF “HOW TO SAVE DEMOCRACY”
Celebrated champion of democracy Lani Guinier once wrote, "Democracy isn't something we inherit. It is not something we inhabit. It is not something we consume. It's something we actively build together." This excellent collection of quotations will inspire our essential work to build strong and resilient 21st century democracies where all people have a seat at the table.

We have all heard—certainly after Jan. 6, 2021—that we cannot take democracy for granted. But what does that mean in practice? As Eli Merritt shows in this slim, powerful volume, it means enacting and defending a specific set of human values and ensuring that there is accountability whenever those values are attacked. By quoting today's world leaders on the importance of democracy, Merritt has performed an invaluable service: to hold the powerful to their word, while holding the rest of us—the people—responsible for protecting the best system of government yet devised
