The distinguished contributors to "Securing Democracy"--including Michael Barone, Walter Berns, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan--have an uncommonly complete understanding of the nature of American politics. They show that the American concept of democracy means much more than a prejudice for national direct elections. This book is the definitive volume for anyone interested in the logic and importance of the Electoral College, as well as the uniquely successfully democracy it has helped forge.
