A refresher manifesto on the virtues and vulnerable core values of democracy by the feminist political commentator and author of The End of America and The Beauty Myth reveals how everyday citizens can understand and use democracy for the betterment of society.
I have read her "Letters to a Young Patriot" and loved it, thought I thought it was a little extreme. I feel the same way about this book. It brings up some troubling trends: increasing limits on the freedom of speech and the increasing difficulty for average citizens to be involved in the government being the two big focuses of her witting.
However, one of the most interesting parts of her book is near the end, where it gives a handbook that is, I believe anyway, extremely helpful for anyone who wants to play a bigger part in American politics and taking back the government form interest groups and corrupt politicians.
