Book summary

In an engaging and eye-opening mix of democratic thought and current issues, Hudson's provocative and popular text raises fundamentally important questions: does our national security state threaten the very democratic rights it is defending? Does the expansion of judicial power constitute a challenge to our democracy? Does the privileged position of business undermine democratic politics? In the wake of 9/11, the collapse of Enron and Worldcom, and the Supreme Court's controversial involvement in the 2000 presidential election, Hudson focuses on eight challenges to American democracy to provide not only balanced, clear-sighted recommendations for reform, but to emphasize that the strength of our political system rests on our ability to respond successfully to these pressing issues.
