A concise and engaging approach to the study of representative government in America, this book focuses on theory and critique as opposed to endless description. Beginning with an analysis of James Madison's defense of republican government, Republic at Risk: Self-Interest in American Politics develops a thought-provoking theme: the need to enhance the democratic, representative, and participatory nature of American politics and government. The author's straightforward, honest study of the current system of American government, given the problems of our nation, the world, and the human race, stimulates critical thinking. The concept of self-interest, so central to Madison's Republic, is examined from several perspectives as it applies to citizens and to elites in American politics.
