This concise, highly affordable text provides an engaging, analytical approach to American Government that stresses the importance of elections in contemporary American politics.
America’s New Democracy is written in a strong narrative voice and contains student-relevant examples. It provides a focused and stimulating treatment of politics in the United States. The book challenges the pessimistic view that government seldom listens to ordinary people by illustrating popular influence across the political system in defense of a central theme—-that elections matter more in America’s political system today than they have in the past or do in other democracies. America’s New Democracy encourages readers to see that in a system where votes are the main currency, both power and responsibility rest on the shoulders of all citizens.
America's New Democracy is part of our Penguin Academic Series. The “Penguin Academics” series offers accessibly written, elegantly designed, and highly affordable trade-format books by pre-eminent scholars.
