The Founding Fathers V. the People
Paradoxes of American DemocracyeBook - 2012
The founding fathers emphasized a system in which "the people" were allowed to play only a limited role. Radical democrats insisted that the people, and only the people, should rule. Anthony King shows how this initial conflict has played out in the turmoil of our nation's public life, and he offers a way to address it.
