The Struggle for Democracy gives you the tools to decode the American political system and to identify opportunities to make a difference. Taking a fresh approach to American government, the authors present an accessible framework of evidence-based research that shows how government, politics and the larger society are intertwined. Prompting you to make critical judgments about how well our government works, the authors pose the questions "How democratic are we?" and "Can government do anything well?"
