Summary
"This volume is an investigation of the effects of three decades of Republican rule - three decades in which political processes established by the rules, traditions, laws and constitutional mandates of the federal system have been broken or simply ignored." "John W. Dean traces the development of these fundamental failures of the political system, from Nixon's imperial presidency through Reagan's popular disparagement of government to the doctrines that have reached their fullest expression in the administration of George W. Bush." "A broken government is not one beyond repair, and Dean concludes this book on an optimistic note by addressing the question he is often asked by readers: What can the concerned citizen do to return America to its true legacy?"--BOOK JACKET
