What People are Saying About This

E. J. Dionne

"Elshtain's is a brilliant voice calling us away from cynicism and toward citizenship. In her hands democracy is not a tired word from a dusty civis book but a moral challenge, an achievable ideal, and a source of hope."

Robert Coles

"A powerful moral statement about the meaning of democracy."
