Synopsis

A qualitative analysis of America's trend toward direct democracy, this book places today's populist movements in their historical context. Throughout this work, Federici reflects on the meaning of democracy by examining strains of populism and how they relate to America's Constitutional tradition. He concludes that recent right-wing populism in the economic, religious, and foreign policy arenas poses a serious threat to the Constitutional tradition. This book offers insights for journalists and scholars of American history, social movements, sociology and democracy.
