The Irony of Democracy free pdf The question at the center of the sixteenth edition of THE IRONY OF DEMOCRACY is "How democratic is American society?" While most American government texts address politics from a pluralist perspective, this text approaches the subject by addressing the theme of elitism and contrasting it with democratic theory and modern pluralist theory. As a result, this text helps readers understand why the U.S. government works as it does.
