Reviews

"Democracy for the Few is a radical text that will educate, entertain, inspire, and provoke students to read, think, and be critical." - Dan Brook, Ph.D., San Jose State University
"Democracy for the Few is the most clearly written, innovative and thought provoking textbook I've seen. I find it hard to imagine a better text! This book will make your students understand how the American government functions while forcing them to think for themselves. Even if you don't agree with the viewpoint taken by Parenti, this book will help spark invaluable classroom discussions." - Dr. William A. Pelz, Elgin Community College
