The Parties Versus the People

How to Turn Democrats and Republicans Into Americans

By Mickey Edwards

“America's political system is dysfunctional. While this is a widely held view, it is a problem that - so far - has proved intractable. After every election voters discover yet again that political "leaders" aren't leading. Instead they are simply quarreling in a never-ending battle between the two warring tribes, the Republicans and Democrats. In this critically important book, a distinguished statesman and thinker identifies exactly how our political and governing systems reward intransigence, discourage compromise, and indeed undermine our democracy.” -- Yale University Press, August 2012
