Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hetherington is making a marked reversal from the way the concept is typically treated by scholars. . . . This careful, multipronged approach yields a persuasive case for treating political trust as an independent variable with important ramifications for the study of public opinion and public policy."--Sean Aday, Public Opinion Quarterly

"Marc Hetherington['s] . . . wonderful new book . . . is recommended because it will spark many lively discussions that will remind readers what drew them to political science in the first place."--William Cunion, White House Studies

From the Inside Flap

"Provocative, smoothly written, and supported by appropriate data, this is a first-rate book by a first-rate scholar. The message is timely and the thesis unique and believable."--John Hibbing, University of Nebraska, author of Stealth Democracy: Americans' Beliefs about How Government Should Work

"Why Trust Matters adds a new dimension to the study of trust in government by showing the consequences of prolonged political distrust on support for liberal social welfare policies. Hetherington shows that the decline in support is due not to increased conservatism in the population, but rather due to declining trust."--Samantha Luks, University of Minnesota

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
People in our current moment can benefit from reading this book by Vanderbilt Professor Marc Hetherington. His analysis of the decline in political trust over the past several decades--even in the face of high public approval for big government programs--has much to say to current bitter political debates over the Affordable Care Act (popularly known as "Obamacare") and will help readers arrive at a better, more nuanced understanding of public resistance than the current explanation that revolves around notions of Republican ill will or conspiracy.
