Democracy's Edge: Choosing to Save Our Country by Bringing Democracy to Life
Publisher: Jossey-Bass | ISBN 10: 0787943118 | 2005 | PDF | 496 pages | 1.8 MB
Three out of five Americans, both Republicans and Democrats, feel our country is headed in the wrong direction. America is at the edge, a critical place at which we can either renew and revitalize or give in and lose that most precious American ideal democracy and along with it the freedom, fairness, and opportunities it assures. Democracy Edge is a rousing battle cry that we can and must act now. From Jefferson to Eisenhower, presidents from both parties have warned us of the danger of letting a closed, narrow group of business and government officials concentrate power over our lives. Yet today, a small and unrepresentative group of people is making vital decisions for all of us.
