Abstract:

"Contemporary American politics are riven by elite polarization and rising inequality. The 'state of the art' volume on inequality and American democracy succeeds admirably in linking rigorous scholarship to transcendently important questions about political participation and governmental responsiveness. By synthesizing and evaluating previous studies and outlining an agenda for future research, its superb contributors demonstrate brilliantly how political science, and social science more generally, can once again grapple with fundamental issues of democratic performance." Thomas E. Mann, W. Averell Harriman Chair and senior fellow, The Brookings Institution.
