American Government: Constitutional Democracy Under Pressure

Buy

American Government: Constitutional Democracy Under Pressure highlights the necessary tension between our constitutional principles and institutions and the populist heat that sometimes roils our national politics, especially at the current political moment. Our constitutional democracy has been under pressure for some time, but few would deny that fears for its fate have deepened in just the past few years. We assume that our political institutions will limit and contain contemporary populism, just as the Founders intended and as they have in the past, but will they? An increasingly polarized electorate, urging their representatives to fight and never to compromise, may be stressing Constitutional limits. This new, compact core text offers to help American government teachers lead their students to a nuanced theoretical and practical understanding of what is happening in the politics of their Constitutional democracy today.

  • A new, brief edition of Jillson's American Government text that is compact yet comprehensive.
  • The "Constitutional Democracy Under Pressure" theme is timely and provocative.
  • Puts contemporary trends toward polarization and populism in context.
