Stealth Democracy : Americans' Beliefs About How Government Should Work (02 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Examining how people want their democratic government to work, this study finds that Americans don't like many of the practices associated with democracy: the conflicts, the debates, the compromises. It finds that Americans don't want to have to see democracy in practice, nor do they want to be involved in politics. If American citizens had their way, political decisions would be made by unselfish decision-makers, lessening the need for monitoring government.

Synopsis:

Stealth Democracy examines how people want their democratic government to work. It finds that Americans don't like many of the practices associated with democracy--the conflict, the debates, the compromises. They don't want to have to see democracy in practice and they do not want to be involved in politics. If they had their way, political decisions would be made by decision makers who were not at all selfish because then the people would be free from having to monitor government and could pursue the multitude of interests they find more enjoyable

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 257-274) and index.

Synopsis:

Stealth Democracy finds the type of democracy Americans prefer: the less participation, the better.
