SIDELIGHTS: Takis Fotopoulos once told CA: "My primary motivation in writing has been to develop a new political project; that is, the project for an inclusive democracy (political, economic, ecological, and democracy in the social realm). The aim of this project is to reintegrate society with economy, polity, and nature. It represents a synthesis of the socialist and democratic traditions, which also encompasses the new social movements (feminist, green, et cetera). I started developing this project in my articles for the journal Democracy and Nature, and I further expanded it in my books, Towards an Inclusive Democracy: The Crisis of the Growth Economy and the Need for a New Liberatory Project and Globalization, the Left, and Inclusive Democracy."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
