Summary

Part of the popular "Penguin Academics" Series,America's Democratic Republicis a brief, affordable book in an accessible trade-like format that explores the clash between the democratic aspirations of the American people and the republican foundations of our Constitution. Written with a lively, narrative style, this text traces the storyline of American government and focuses on the .long standing and inescapable tension between the countryrs"s 18th Century republican Constitutional foundations and the democratic aspirations of the American people. The thematic framework helps students to consider American government and politics as a hybrid--rooted equally in the founderrs"s intentions to restrain the majority and the peoplers"s growing demand for a more fully realized democracy. In this manner,Americars"s Democratic Republicprovides an engaging narrative that works to diminish student apathy, quell cynicism, and inspire their reengagement in civic life. The "Penguin Academics" series offers accessibly written, elegantly designed, and highly affordable trade-format books by pre-eminent scholars.
