Summary

This critical thinking approach to American government asks students to evaluate the quality of democracy in America today within a unique framework that offers a holistic view of our system. The seventh edition of this best-selling text has been completely updated through the 2004 Presidential Election. Continuing to offer a lively, critical thinking approach to the course, The Struggle for Democracy is organized around two themes: Using the Democracy Standard and Using the Framework. The first theme, woven throughout the narrative, asks students to evaluate the health and vitality of American democracy today against a carefully defined democratic ideal. The text's second theme, Using the Framework, asks students to look at the structures underlying our political systemsuch as the economy, society, cultural values, technologyand examine how these structures affect, and are affected by, our political system.
