The Limits of PoliticsBy Eric MayforthIn his 1960 book "The Semisovereign People," political scientist E.E. Schattschneider asserted that "democracy is a competitive political system in which competing leaders and organizations define the alternatives of Public Policy in such a way that the public can participate in the decision-making process."Politics is about conflict, the author showed, and discussed the privatization versus the socialization of conflicts, talked about which types of groups want to socialize conflicts, and noted that one of the central tasks that politicians undertake is the fight to emphasize which issues should be fought over and brought before the electorate in the first place.Many decry the influence of special interests in politics, but Schattschneider demonstrated the limits of the strength of pressure groups and argued that only the two large political parties have the strength to present choices to the electorate and then implement their programs once elected.The author also looked back at the post-Civil War party system and described the huge changes that came in the wake of the elections of 1896 and 1932. "The Semisovereign People" is a worthy study of how conflicts are really initiated and resolved in the American political system.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. A must read and re-read especially postelection 2016By lelanaThis is a must-read, now more than ever. It is a physics textbook of politics - explaining the forces of opinion, rhetoric, debate and political group formation. It is nearly impossible to see the world of American politics the same once you have read it. I am tempted to put together a postelection Reading List - Federalist papers, the New Jim Crow among them. This would be at the top of the list, it is that relevant almost 60 years since its writing.12 of 12 people found the following review helpful.
