The Challenge of Democracy Summary


The Challenge of Democracy: American Government in a Global World by Kenneth Janda

This best-selling American government text is highly acclaimed for the nonideological framework it uses to explore three themes: freedom, order, and equality as political values; the majoritarianism versus pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, this edition includes new examples, figures, data, and current discussions. The authors have also added a balanced retrospective of the Bush presidency, as well as new comparative features that place the United States in a global context. The tenth edition also includes access to AmericansGoverning.org, an online learning environment designed specifically to engage students in the political process through a variety of media, including original videos, campaign commercials, writing excerpts, simulations, and additional sources. Additional media tools include the new In Our Own Words feature - downloadable chapter overviews in MP3 format narrated by the authors - and marginal references to the award-winning site, IDEAlog.org.
