Format: Paperback
The book traces the citizens' involvement in government from the Founding Fathers to today's community meeting at the county courthouse. I enjoyed the coverage of Jefferson and Hamilton's debates and the exploration of the citizens' role in government. Through a historical understanding of the structure of our government (which is shown to discourage consensus and promote litigious solutions), the book espouses the benefits of grassroot community-based solutions to societal problems.

Required reading for anyone who wonders how America came to be a divided, polarized nation. Kemmis traces the traditions of American political discourse and relates them to current civic debates. Another book that deals with the need for a sense of community is M. Scott Peck's "The Different Drum: Community-Making and Peace," 1987.

At the time of my reading, the approval rating of the US Congress is 8%. Obviously something is wrong. This visionary book might be a few years old, but it's needed now more than ever. Anyone interested in the future of democracy should read this.

This book is a game changer for bringing a better process to community decision-making. It was a huge help in opening my eyes to the design of the procedural bureaucracy, and ways to change it. If you are active in your community and tired of us-vs-them scenarios that plague many communities, then this is a must read!
