    What ails democracy in America today, and what can be done about it? This work traces the political predicament to a defect in the public philosophy by which we live. The author identifies the dominant public philosophy of the 1990s and finds it flawed.

    – Free labor versus wage labor

    – Community, self-government, and progressive reform

    – Liberalism and Keynesian revolution

    – The triumph and travail of the procedual republic

    – Conclusion : In search of a public policy.
