Schumpeter's Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy is perhaps the most important and influential book on the subject ever written This volume is the result of an effort to weld into a readable form the bulk of almost forty years' thought, observation and research on the subject of socialism. The problem of democracy forced its way into the place it now occupies in this volume because it proved impossible to state my views on the relation between the socialist order of society and the democratic method of government without a rather extensive analysis of the latter. Moreover, this material also reflected the analytic efforts of an individual who, while always honestly trying to probe below the surface, never made the problems of socialism the principal subject of his professional research for any length of time and therefore has much more to say on some topics than on others. In order to avoid creating the impression that I aimed at writing a well-balanced treatise I have thought it best to group my material around five central themes. Links and bridges between them have been provided of course and something like systematic unity of presentation has, I hope, been achieved. But in essence they are-though not independent-almost self-contained pieces of analysis.
It is 490BC and Athens is at war. Leander, trying to rouse his comrades for the morrow's battle against a far mightier enemy, begins to recount the story of his own life. Having witnessed the evils of the old tyrannical regimes and the rise of a new political system, Leander tells a tale of danger, bravery and big ideas, of the death of gods and the tortuous birth of democracy. Through a series of breathtaking scenes, we see that democracy was forged from chance and historical contingency - but also through the cunning and courage of a group of highly talented, driven individuals. Alecos Papadatos and Annie Di Donna, artists behind the international phenomenon Logicomix, together with writer Abraham Kawa deliver a graphic novel bursting with extraordinary characters and vibrant colour, one that offers fresh insight into how this greatest of civic inventions came to be.

The main character in this novel, Eyale, ideologises the need for a new system – ‘Strict Democracy’, which should help burn the bridges in politics in the developing and under developing countries by proposing stiffer punitive measures to mitigate the selfish urges of political appointees and their cronies. ‘Strict Democracy’ espouses the need to vote solely on idea basis rather than on party lines; the need for the nation to jail all politicians in the ruling government should they fail to deliver to promises they made in their manifesto. It also brings to the fore the need for members of parliament to be sacked before their tenure should they vote contrary to the decisions of their people.
