Abstract:

Take American democracy, in many peoples' minds the model for the rest of the world. [In this book, the author] points out that the American form of democracy is one of the least democratic in use today. Members of the Supreme Court and the Federal Reserve - institutions that fundamentally shape our lives - are appointed, not elected. The Bill of Rights enumerates a set of privileges to which citizens are entitled "no matter what the majority says." By restricting our democracy, we enhance our freedom. [In the book, he also] calls for a restoration of the balance between liberty and democracy and shows how liberal democracy has to be made effective and relevant for our times. Woodrow Wilson said the challenge of the twentieth century was to make the world safe for democracy. As we enter the twenty-first century, [the] book challenges us to make democracy safe for the world.-Dust jacket.
