"The basic these of this introductory text is an analysis of conflict and consent in the American system of government. The book maintains that all forms of government were established to resolve the conflict which naturally results from communal living, and investigates the various ways in which groups arrive at 'the consent of the governed.' The study begins with the formation of the American pluralist democracy; discusses the political institutions and how they contribute to that democracy and how the institutions change; examines how pluralist democracy functions in conflict and assesses the influence of the individual in a pluralist democracy."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
