The openDemocracy Book Club is a monthly event for supporters and anyone interested in human rights, transparency and freedom of expression.

This month, we are reading 'Democracy for Sale' by Peter Geoghegan. This book talks about how money, vested interests and digital skulduggery are bending our politics out of shape. Democracy is in crisis, and unaccountable and untraceable flows of money are helping to destroy it.

If you would like to support us (and local shops), the book is available to purchase on

Reserve your free place now for the discussion on December 8 at 5pm UK time/12pm EST. The event will be chaired by Martin Williams, Investigations Editor. Peter Geoghegan – who is also openDemocracy's Editor-in-chief – will also join to answer readers' questions.
