Is American democracy gridlocked, obsolete, or dead? The American Promise journeys into communities, neighborhoods, & voluntary organizations around the country to find democracy flourishing where citizens are making it work. In provocative, inspiring stories & powerful photos, this celebration of democracy in action is a field trip beyond ideology & into the real world where ordinary people live the promise of democratic action & self-government. It shows people struggling with the limits of freedom, gaining political power, protecting their environment, creating community, rebuilding cities, & forging consensus.
