Review

"Democracy for the Few is a radical text that will educate, entertain, inspire, and provoke students to read, think, and be critical." - Dan Brook, Ph.D., San Jose State University

"Democracy for the Few is the most clearly written, innovative and thought provoking textbook I've seen. I find it hard to imagine a better text! This book will make your students understand how the American government functions while forcing them to think for themselves. Even if you don't agree with the viewpoint taken by Parenti, this book will help spark invaluable classroom discussions." - Dr. William A. Pelz, Elgin Community College

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Day Democracy Is Broken 27 Jun. 2014
By AlanWarner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is so profound and well written that I have a hard time leaving anything out of my review, the entire chapter 19 Democracy for the Few starting on page 268 is a good place to begin at the section titled "What is To Be Done" starting on the bottom of page 277 is vital must read material, another must read section is chapter 13 "Mass Media: For the Many, by the Few" starting on page 163, the section titled "The Ideological Monopoly" beginning on the top of page 167 is especially delicious. If you only buy one book a year this is the book you should buy and carefully read every last word in it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking truth about Democracy in America 24 May 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Eye opening! This book changed my perception of the American political system and awakened me to just how far away from democracy our country has become. It is time to make a change and the only way this can happen is if ordinary citizens get involved and let their voice be heard. If we do not take action I fear that generations to come will not enjoy the benefits of democracy in its true form.
