The central question then is how to connect micro-deliberations in mini-publics to the political decision-making processes of the larger society. This book surveys these new deliberative mechanisms, asking how they work and what we can properly expect of them. Much though they have to offer, they cannot deliver all that deliberative democrats hope.

Talk, this book concludes, is good as discovery procedure but not as a decision procedure. Micro-deliberative mechanisms should supplement, not supplant, representative democracy.
This book shows how to adapt our thinking about those familiar institutions to take full advantage of deliberative inputs. That involves rethinking who should get a say, how we hold people accountable, how we sequence deliberative moments and what the roles of parties and legislatures can be in that. Keywords: deliberative democracy , mini-publics , representative democracy , political parties , political accountability.
