Description

What is democracy and where did it come from? Is it a new development or was it always present in human society? And perhaps the most important question: what can we do to preserve and strengthen democracy among the forces that oppose it? In this book we explore trends throughout history that have brought democratic - and undemocratic - government to people wherever civilization exists. We discuss where democracy has been most, and least, successful and why. But our most important task is to clarify what each of us can do, as politicians or ordinary citizens, to bring the benefits of democracy more fully into the personal and political lives of those who cherish it. Includes the section: Guide to Voting in a Democracy -show more

Review quote

"I'm encouraged and happy that you are putting out a book on the conditions that undergird a healthy democracy. I worry that many of those conditions are challenged these days, and I can no longer assume or trust that our students have had the benefit of a traditional civics education before they come to college. And so, your book is not only useful, I think it's increasingly necessary." - Dennis Holtschneider, CM, President of DePaul Universityshow more
