'How Democratic Is the American Constitution?' -Thom Hartmann's Independent Thinker Review

In "How Democratic Is the American Constitution", Robert A. Dahl takes us deeper into the complexities of how and when the ideals of American democracy were framed, and shows us that this great document came about in a way that was not as orderly as one might think. And while this book would make excellent reading for any college political science course, (much of it is indeed taken from lectures), the writing style makes it very readable.
