Overview

What Would Jefferson Do?: A Return to Democracy by Thom Hartmann

Today, some 80 nations can be described as fully democratic. Yet in numerous countries around the world, democracy has failed or is tottering, and in the United States its principles are increasingly under siege from corporate and other forces.

In What Would Jefferson Do? Thom Hartmann shows why democracy is not an aberration in human history but the oldest, most resilient, and most universal form of government, with roots in nature itself. He traces the history of democracy in the United States, identifies the most prevalent myths about it, and offers an inspiring yet realistic plan for transforming the political landscape and reviving Jefferson’s dream before it is too late.

Excellent book! Extremely informative and easy read! This is more of a fact finder, not only political, but social

Thom Hartmann's What Would Jefferson Do? originated as a thoughtful and knowledgeable critique of the Bush administration's policies as they were emerging. It remains and will remain of enduring interest because it brings us back to first principles, to the cardinal values upon which "the American experiment" was founded. More about "what Jefferson would say" than what he would do, this very readable and well-informed book reminds us of the criteria by which any political or social reform movement should be evaluated.
