The question at the center of the 15th edition of THE IRONY OF DEMOCRACY is "How democratic is American society?" While most American government texts address politics from a pluralist perspective, this text approaches the subject by addressing the theme of elitism and contrasting it with democratic theory and modern pluralist theory. As a result, this text helps students understand why the U.S. government works as it does.
