Description of 10 Steps To Repair American Democracy from Steven Hill

Following an economic tsunami of historic proportions, American democracy finds itself plagued by partisan polarization, a rigidly divided Congress, superficial political debate, and political paralysis. Even before the economic crisis, the United States was beleaguered by choiceless elections, out-of-control campaign spending, suspicious voting equipment, partisan election officials, even a partisan U.S. Supreme Court. Americans are growing increasingly frustrated and tuned out, as the middle collapses and the partisans take over. Just in time for the 2012 elections, 10 Steps to Repair American Democracy: A More Perfect Union addresses head-on the mine field built into our political system. In a brand new edition, political critic Steven Hill expands on his ten-step program to improve American democracy. He proposes specific reforms to give voters more choices at the ballot box, boost voter turnout, calm the Senate’s “filibuster gone wild” ways, modernize our media institutions, turn off the spigot of corporate donations, and bring the U.S. government back to the mainstream. In the face of mounting cynicism about the American political system, 10 Steps to Repair American Democracy is a refreshing blueprint for how to resurrect our Founders' democratic vision. It will change the way you think about American politics.

"...as practical as it is insightful..." —Arianna Huffington

“We are fortunate to have 10 Steps to Repair American Democracy, to help us find our political compass." —Hendrik Hertzberg, Senior Editor, The New Yorker
