Overview

In this thoughtful and highly readable critique of contemporary politics and government in the United States, James Fishkin evaluates modern democratic practices, explains how the voice of the people has struggled to make itself heard in the past, and joins this with a review of ideas and experiments-including Fishkin's idea for a National Issues Convention that was adapted by PBS in January 1996-to legitimately rediscover the people's voice.
