Description

American democracy is built on its institutions. The Congress, the presidency, and the judiciary, in particular, secure the rights and responsibilities of every citizen. Public schools are entrusted to preserve civic virtues and ideals, while the free Press, protected by the First Amendment, allows for the dissent so necessary in a democracy. The Institutions of American Democracy, published in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands and the Annenberg Public Policy Center, is a series of publications designed to stimulate debate about the future of American democracy. Commissions of the nation's leading scholars as well as practitioners directly involved with each of these institutions have gathered together to discuss the important issues being debated within these institutions. The five volumes in this series represent a valuable contribution towards a better understanding of American democracy today.show more
