Overview

From Oath to Action: Simple Acts of Courage to Rebuild American Democracy by Jeff Edelstein

From Oath to Action presents a bold, yet achievable, pathway to rebuilding American democracy. The book challenges our very understanding of what political leadership looks like in today's world. At a time when our political landscape looks increasingly bleak, this book inspires through its vision and its practicality.

Our democratic institutions need repairing-on that most Americans would agree. But institutions change only when the people in them change, and most people change only one step at a time.

Therein lies the path forward. We don't need politicians who will "fix Washington." We need politicians who will fix themselves, one simple act of courage at a time.

From Oath to Action suggests twelve acts of courage that could transform American politics. Some are so simple that anyone aspiring to leadership should embrace them. Others are for the more courageous. One is so powerful-a "do or die" pledge-that it could fix a long-hidden flaw at the heart of representative democracy.

Leadership in the 21st century should be about more than just taking an oath. It should be about taking action. Courageous action. This book provides a roadmap to courageous action for leaders and citizens alike.
