FROM THE PUBLISHER - Vote-buying and fixed elections, slanderous competition, preposterous graft. this is the Washington of the 1870ís which Henry Adams reveals in his famous novel. Democracy is the story of two people who aspire to power. Mrs. Lightfoot Lee, a wealthy society widow, wants to align herself with the great lawmakers whom she idealizes. Instead, she becomes involved with Silas Ratcliffe, the most powerful man in the Senate, a leader whose political maneuvers are surpassed only by his courtship tactics. Here is an incisive exposé of corruption-in individuals and in government., an entertaining caricature of government life which may be seen to have its application even today. .
