Politics and the American Future: Dilemmas of Democracy
McGraw-Hill, 1996 - 411 páginas
Written for the American Government course, this book is a point-of-view book that addresses the fundamental dilemma facing democratic societies. This book takes all of the traditional topics covered by an American Government text and shows how they are influenced by the trade-offs between efficacy and representativeness. For example, in the civil liberties chapter, it is shown how the emergencies of the Civil War, World War I and World War II led to curbs on civil liberties. As the emergency of World War II ended and the fear of communism receded, much of the 1960s and 1970s saw a relaxation in the demand for efficacy and a growing demand for representativeness.
