Summary
  • "What is the proper role of government in American life? This is the principal controversy in contemporary American politics. While most Americans today proclaim they do not trust Washington, Milton J. Esman believes that the United States suffers not from too much government but from too little. Esman shows how American conservatives have, for the last quarter-century, hammered away at the federal government, attacking its size, its inefficiencies, the limits it places on personal freedom, and its intervention in what they believe should be free and untrammeled market transactions. Their antigovernment viewpoint dominates the current public discourse on politics."
  • "Government Works includes a historical study of public attitudes toward government and an analysis of the functions that only government can perform to ensure a healthy future for the American people and to check the negative effects of economic globalization. Esman proposes a set of political tactics to address the unchallenged trashing of a central institution of American democracy and to restore public confidence in government."--Jacket
