Description

Product Description

The question at the center of the seventeenth edition of THE IRONY OF DEMOCRACY is �How democratic is American society?� While most American government books address politics from a pluralist perspective (the theory that many groups of people share power in the United States), this book approaches the subject using an elitist perspective (the theory that only a tiny number of people make the decisions that shape our lives). By exposing the irony between elitism and democratic theory and modern pluralism, this eye-opening book helps readers understand why the U.S. government works as it does.

Review

�The Irony of Democracy is a good alternative introduction to American politics and government that challenges students to think critically about U.S. government and their role in it.�

�[THE IRONY OF DEMOCRACY] makes a strong case for ideas students have not considered before. Some love it, others object strongly to it, but it makes them all think about our system and its values in a new light.�

I thought this textbook was well organized and was a easy to follow introductory guide to the basic fundamentals of our government. I ordered this textbook as it was required for my Political Science 1 Class. I also took this class with Louis Schubert at City College of San Francisco and somehow almost like magic, the text seemed nearly identical to the in-class discussions.

For a person that wants and introduction into politics, this is not the book to read. It can be very hard to understand at times, very dense.
