About this product
- DescriptionTo govern in a democracy, political leaders have to compromise. When they do not, the result is political paralysis - dramatically demonstrated by the gridlock in Congress in recent years. This book shows why compromise is so important, what stands in the way of achieving it, and how citizens can make defensible compromises more likely.
- Author BiographyAmy Gutmann is president of the University of Pennsylvania, where she is also the Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Political Science in the School of Arts and Sciences and professor of communication in the Annenberg School of Communication.
