Which is better: to live under a government that allows individuals complete freedom to do whatever they please, or to live under one that enforces strict law and order? Which is better: to let all citizens keep the same share of their income, or to tax wealthier people at a higher rate to fund programs for poorer people? These questions pose dilemmas tied to opposing political philosophies that place different values on freedom, order, and equality. This book explains American government and politics in light of these dilemmas. As its title implies, The Challenge of Democracy argues that good government often involves difficult choices.
The new edition has been extensively updated to include current discussions and new examples, including the 2006 congressional elections, Hurricane Katrina, immigration policy, and more.
