Format: Paperback
DISTRUST AMERICAN STYLE: DIVERSITY AND THE CRISIS OF PUBLIC CONFIDENCE offers a fine analysis of the changing political system by a political scientist who considers the national psyche and claims that growing diversity and the breakdown of community interaction resulted in the problems we have today. Any college-level collection strong in government systems and values, along with many a high school political science library, needs this.

The book is all over the place. Just needed it for a class. It starts off very intersting, but as you get into it, it does not stick to the key points within the introduction.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book on how "good government" reforms can not only restore public trust in the government itself, but can help hold together our increasing diverse society. Like all of Kennedy's books, it is extremely thoughtful, thought-provoking, and well written.
