Description
It is widely believed that democratic deliberations in Congress -- whereby judgments are made on the merits of policies and reflect the interests and desires of American citizens -- are more myth than reality. Joseph M. Bessette argues that the institutional framework created by the founding fathers continues to foster a government that is both democratic and deliberative. He demonstrates not only the limitations of nondeliberative explanations for how laws are made but also the continued vitality of genuine reasoning on the merits of public policy, Bessette provides a set of standards by which to assess the workings of our governing institutions.
