From the Publisher
"A superb book. Tight, coherent, and well conceived, it is a timely intervention in very important current events and issues. More important, it nicely joins commentary with a theoretical analysis of democracy that is compelling. This book is an excellent example of a kind of public intellectualism that is all too rare.”-- Jeffrey C. Isaac, author of Democracy in Dark Times
"Robert Ivie is a first-rate scholar, and this book shows a stunning mastery of the scholarship and journalism converging on the topic. He writes clearly and authoritatively on everything from Greek ideas about democracy and rhetoric to yesterday's speech by a politician. This is an important book deserving a wide readership."
—Jay Mechling, author of On My Honor: Boy Scouts and the Making of American Youth
