5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book for Anyone Who Likes Politics, July 8, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: You Won-- Now What?: How Americans Can Make Democracy Work from City Hall to the White House (Lisa Drew Books) (Hardcover)
Every now and then a book comes along that makes me wonder why no one had ever written it before. The most basic point of our democracy is that we allow citizens to sweep out our leaders and replace them with people who may or may not know what they are doing. Sure, America's transitions between admininstrations are peaceful, but is our government competent? Not always. Is there any wonder why citizens are cynical when we put people in office who don't know how to get things accomplished in government?
Ye, as this book shows very well, there are elected and appointed officials across the nation who are succeeding everday. The book takes examples from the local, state and federal levels and draws unique lessons about what makes our government tick.
The book is also extremely well written. Highly recommended.
