The Crisis of American Democracy
$14.95
Add to Cart
This volume of lectures is remarkably prescient and historically relevant in light of the recent revelations of NSA spying, drone assassinations and the suppression of Constitutionally protected rights by the Democratic administration of Barack Obama. David North establishes in a detailed analysis of the 2000 and 2004 US presidential elections that behind the breakdown of democracy in the United States lies the deterioration of its global economic position and the unprecedented growth of social inequality—already apparent at that time. North analyzes the extreme social and class tensions within American society underlying the bi-partisan “war on terror” initiated under George W. Bush, which ushered in a period of aggressive militarism abroad and the threat of police state rule in the US that has deepened under the Obama administration. Learn More

The articles gathered in this pamphlet examine the sociological roots of this disaster. Learn More
