Is this any way to run a democratic election? by Stephen J Wayne( Book )

Americans tout the benefits and ideals of their democratic political system. So why is there such persistent criticism of the election process? Detractors claim that American elections are completely driven by money or controlled by special interests, that incumbents have too much of an advantage, that the news media are too interested in scandal, and that in today's partisan world, the winners will not compromise on policy issues. If these critics are right, then what exactly is wrong with the process and how should it be fixed? Stephen Wayne answers these tough questions, exploring both critical and controversial issues, looking at American democracy in both theory and practice. The third edition is a thorough update, covering such topics as voter turnout problems, voting fraud and irregularities, new legislation designed to reform the campaign finance system, the front-loading of the nomination process, and the use of the Internet by candidates. In addition, each chapter concludes with a critical thinking section that features discussion questions, topics for debate, research-oriented exercises, and suggested online resources. - Publisher

Is this any way to run a democratic government?( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is This Any Way to Run a Democratic Government? examines the theory and practice of American democracy - and the dichotomy that exists between them. The contributors assess both the reasons and the consequences of this division between the ideals of our republic and reality. This book is about the institutions, processes, and politics of government: how well they work, whether they meet the criteria for a viable democratic system, and the extent to which they contribute to good public policy." "As we begin the 21st century with rancorous political partisanship and threats to domestic security and tranquility at an all-time high, Is This Any Way to Run a Democratic Government? asks us to think seriously about the state of our celebrated democracy, and whether or not our political system can respond to the pressing needs of a new era without jeopardizing the basic values and beliefs that constitute its very foundations."--Jacket

"Stephen Wayne combines the rigor of a political scientist with the insights of a psychologist to explain how President Obama's character intersects with politics to produce the policies of his administration. Wayne explores the tensions between Obama's ideals and the reality of American politics as well as the fissures between his transformational vision and his transactional style. If you want to know what makes Obama tick, this book is a good place to start."--James P. Pfiffner, George Mason University
