This concise, highly affordable text provides an engaging, analytical approach to American Government that stresses the importance of elections in contemporary American politics.

Written in a strong narrative voice and brimming with student-relevant examples, America’s New Democracy provides a focused and stimulating treatment of politics in the United States. 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. America’s New Democracy encourages readers to see that in a system where votes are the main currency, both power and responsibility rest on the shoulders of all citizens.
