Americas Democratic Republic (Penguin Academic Series) W/L P. COM 2.0 / Edition 1by Benjamin I. Page, Benjamin Page, Benjamin Page
Pub. Date: 12/21/2004
Written in a lively, narrative style and presenting a provacative point-of-view, this book gets to the heart of Americans' frustrations with our government. Acknowledging that cynicism tends to make people withdraw from civic life, this book examines why our government can seem so unsatisfactory, identifying the heart of the American political system: strong democratic aspirations among our citizens conflicting with the republican constitutional foundations on which the country is based.
