    In this ambitious work, wilentz attempts to chart the history of american democracy from the time of the revolution up until the civil war.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Rather than presented as an innate aspect of american civilization, wilentz forcefully argues that democracy was a long, complex process and shows that the founders were not quite as democratic as popular history would like one to believe.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Wilentz writes that these citizens can be broken into two groups: rural democrats, who were opposed to a centralized political power and city artisans, who wanted a say in urban affairs but were willing to defer to a national government on larger questions.

    Although more people are eligible to vote today, wilentz makes a strong case that during the era of jefferson, jackson, and lincoln, the country was more democratic as voter participation was greater and popular involvement within political parties was also greater.

    While lincoln is undoubtedly one of the greatest american presidents, i am not sure the link between the three exists.

    Actually the book begins with democracies roots in america during the period of the revolution and the articles of federation.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    In an easy to read style, wilenz covers the changing political, economic, and sociological circumstances that effected the way that democracy developed in america.
