“Most students have very little conception of what democracy really means. In American Democracy in Peril, Hudson does a great job of explaining what democracy is, how it’s supposed to work, and how it actually works. The book’s strengths lie in the questions it raises related to democracy and in the examples given to support its arguments.”
“American Democracy in Peril is an accessible yet challenging text for students. It’s a textbook that doesn’t feel like a textbook and seriously engages issues and some important texts in political science.”
“I am continually impressed by Hudson’s mastery of the scholarship in all of the areas he writes about. The main strength of American Democracy in Peril is its ability to encourage students to think more critically about the quality of democracy in the United States. Hudson goes beyond the boundaries of government institutions to show how important aspects of our economic system pose serious challenges to our democratic principles and processes.”
Clear and accessible discussion of significant issues with engaging examples and useful class discussion questions.
