It is increasingly evident that the American political system is not working well. Determining precisely where the problem lies--and what the solution is--remains the subject of intense speculation and debate. In this book, Professor William P. Kreml discusses the structural imbalances that he believes are undermining American government. Professor Kreml, who is a political activist as well as a scholar, argues that the fundamental preconstitutional balances--private/public, legal/political, majoritarian/antimajoritarian, and centrifugal/centripetal--that have functioned well throughout most of American history have in recent years been subverted. Professor Kreml analyzes this "de-democratization of America" and points the way to reform.
