America's New Democracy
Pearson/Longman, 2004 - Democracy - 704 pages
The new edition of this brief, highly affordable Penguin Academic Series book includes discussions about midterm elections, the economy, and developments in the Mideast. America's New Democracy offers an elegantly written and highly affordable trade-format text. A strong narrative voice and brimming with student-relevant examples, America's New Democracy provides a focus of American government, that challenges the view that government seldom listens to regular citizens, and illustrates popular influence across the political system in defense of a central theme-that elections matter more in America's system than they have in the past or than they do in most democracies.
