The Future of Democracy in America and the World: A Few Possibilities

Author provides a modern discussion of democracy and democratic culture

BLOOMINGTON, MN - James Schacht describes what is best in the democracies of America and the world, provides an educated assessment of democracy in America and the world today, and provides a framework for realizing our best hope for the future in his new book, The Future of Democracy in America and the World: A Few Possibilities (

Schacht presents a guide to more informed voting; to better campaigning; to better service in government; and to more fully realizing our power and privilege to live our lives according to our beliefs, and pursue and promote our vision of what happiness means to us.

Schacht explores thinking in political philosophy and politics produced recently and as far back as John Locke, whose writings strongly influenced Thomas Jefferson in his writing of the Declaration of Independence; describes democratic culture in America and the world; and describes the institution of democracy in America and the world.

Schacht goes on to describe a framework for pursuing our best hope for the future, which includes working toward common understandings and negotiated agreements, pursuing conflict resolution, and developing reasonably just governments.
