Overview
In A New Republic, one of America's most respected historians offers a major statement on the nature of our political system and a critical look at the underpinnings of our society. American democracy, says John Lukacs, has been transformed from an exercise in individual freedom and opportunity to a bureaucratic system created by and for the dominance of special groups. His book, first published in 1984 as Outgrowing Democracy, is now reissued with a new introduction, in which Lukacs explains his methodology, and a new final chapter, which sums up Lukacs's thoughts on American democracy today. Reviews of the earlier edition "A rich, subtle, and often ingenious argument ...an eloquent, provocative, but disturbing book."-Edwin M. Yoder, Jr., Washington Post Book World "Mr. Lukacs is an original and subtle historian, and [this book] is an engaging intellectual surprise party...I was continuously enchanted by the play of his ideas-by the sharpness of his distinctions and the acuteness of his descriptions."-Naomi Bliven, New Yorker "It has been a long time since Americans were offered such a provocative interpretation of their historical predicament...We would be foolish not to examine it closely.
