Neither Liberal nor Conservative: Ideological Innocence in the American Public (Chicago Studies in American Politics) | Propaganda & Persuasion | The Politics of Resentment | Uninformed | Who Leads Whom? | Persuasion | The Nature and Origins of Mass Opinion
Melding big debates about democratic theory with existing research on American politics and innovative use of the archives of three modern presidentsâJohnson, Nixon, and ReaganâDruckman and Jacobs deploy lively and insightful analysis to show that the conventional model of representative democracy bears little resemblance to the actual practice of American politics. The authors conclude by arguing that polyarchy and the promotion of accelerated citizen mobilization and elite competition can improve democratic responsiveness. An incisive study of American politics and the flaws of representative government, this book will be warmly welcomed by readers interested in US politics, public opinion, democratic theory, and the fecklessness of American leadership and decision-making.
