Rate this:
Weisberg (New York Magazine columnist) argues that the US government must become an agent for social change and economic progress. He examines the historical progression of the American public's loss of confidence in federal institutions, and republican and democratic responses that fail to define what government is supposed to do. He then proposes a new progressive response to restore public trust, challenging anti-government rhetoric and liberal confusion. Lacks a bibliography.
