“This is a book which demands readers and, more important, one which compels the kind of reflection needed if we are to give life to the moribund Republic.” Carey McWilliams, New York Times Book Review
Periods of disorder in the United States have generally been regarded as evil times which must be terminated as quickly as possible. But in this provocative analysis of our political system, pursuing the argument of his noted study The End of Liberalism, Theodore J.

Professor Lowi presents a convincing case for the workable possibility of juridical democracyformal democracy, whose main feature is rule of lawas against interest-group democracy, characterized by policy-without-law.
