Description


During the past two decades, many countries in the world have peacefully undergone a transition to more popular forms of self-governance. The United States represents the world model for evolving forms of democracy. This volume details how government currently works in America. Forty essays examine the condition of all five levels of government in America--city, county, regional, state, and federal. They describe and examine the structures, operations and services provided by each level, as well as how they are financed.
