   schema:reviewBody ""The philosopher-educator John Dewey wrote that "Democracy has to be born anew every generation, and education is its midwife." In an America where every vote - though considered equally - counts for very little, Democracy's Midwife offers the vision of a new kind of democratic system: a deliberative democracy energized by an educated citizenry. Jack Crittenden's excellent new study looks behind the modern democratic rhetoric to reveal a system of government that excludes citizens from participating directly in decision making. The book combines a thorough examination of the rhetorical underpinnings of democratic education with radical solutions for overhauling a system of civic education that dates back to the Founding Fathers." ;
