This unique new reader moves beyond traditional readers by demonstrating the disparity between democratic ideals and the real dynamics of our political institutions. Selections by top scholars and public leaders outline complexities and constraints facing government, in a framework designed to answer the kinds of basic questions that college students ask about American government. The cornerstones of each chapter are selections written by public officials that tie real-world experience to the topics discussed by scholars. This bridging of the gap between academic debate and realistic decision-making sets Ideals and Realities apart, giving students insight into both the world of academic debate and the world of public service.
