America's New Democracy
Morris P. Fiorina • Paul E. Peterson • Stephen D. Voss • Bertram Johnson
Written in a strong narrative voice and brimming with examples of interest to students, the election update of America’s New Democracy provides a focused and stimulating treatment of politics in the United States that is more streamlined than ever before. Illustrating popular influence across the political system in defense of a central theme–that elections matter more in America’s political system today than they have in the past or do in other democracies–the book challenges the pessimistic view that government seldom listens to ordinary people.
