What ails democracy in America today, and what can be done about it? This work traces the political predicament to a defect in the public philosophy by which Americans live. In an account of 1990s controversies over the role of government, the scope of rights and entitlements, and the place of morality in politics, the author identifies the dominant public philosophy of the 1990s and finds it flawed.
