Description

';An urgent and engaging look at how American politics have become the founding fathers' worst nightmare' (The Daily Beast).

America's political system is dysfunctional. We know it, yet the problem seems intractableafter every election, voters discover yet again that political ';leaders' are simply quarreling in a never-ending battle between the two warring tribes.

As a former congressman, Mickey Edwards witnessed firsthand how important legislative battles can devolve into struggles not over principle but over party advantage. He offers graphic examples of how this problem has intensified and reveals how political battles have become nothing more than conflicts between party machines. In this critically important book, he identifies exactly how our political and governing systems reward intransigence, discourage compromise, and undermine our democracyand describes exactly what must be done to banish the negative effects of partisan warfare from our political system and renew American democracy.

';Overcoming tribalism and knee-jerk partisanship is the central challenge of our time. Mickey Edwards shows why and how in this fascinating book filled with sensible suggestions.' Walter Isaacson, New York Timesbestselling author of Leonardo da Vinci

';Many Americans, whether Democrats, Republicans, independent or otherwise, would welcome a few more like [Edwards] in office.' The Boston Globe
