The book discusses the origins of the Constitution; the use of federalism to enliven our communities; the necessity mediating institutions to aggregate the voice of the people; and the processes of the three branches of government and their connection to American citizens. It concludes with a look into the future of politics and government, urging the reader toward a more active role for the citizen leader. Overall, this work offers a comprehensive view of the American governmental system, one that every citizen can use as a manual when reevaluating his or her role in the practice of politics.
