The question at the center of the seventeenth edition of THE IRONY OF DEMOCRACY is "How democratic is American society?" While most American government books address politics from a pluralist perspective (the theory that many groups of people share power in the United States), this book approaches the subject using an elitist perspective (the theory that only a tiny number of people make the decisions that shape our lives).

By exposing the irony between elitism and democratic theory and modern pluralism, this eye-opening book helps readers understand why the U.S. government works as it does.
