The United States is a republic defined by a set of rules written more than two centuries ago. Although some of the rules have changed, the basic plan for our democratic process remains intact. This book examines the system for our representative democracy that was conceived at the Constitutional Convention and born with the ratification of the Constitution. It also illustrates the many challenges a republic faces and describes how the United States has faced those challenges throughout history.
