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?"
The 2020 Presidential Election Edition offers new narrative coverage of the major issues from today's headlines, including the 2020 presidential and congressional elections and the coronavirus pandemic.
