Summary, etc.: Palmer explores the dynamics of American politics, sifting the dynamics of Americans' inner lives for clues to reclaiming our national unity and pointing the way to a politics worthy of the human spirit, rooted in the commonwealth of compassion and creativity still found among "We the People." Democracy is a non-stop experiment in the strengths and weaknesses of our political institutions, local communities, and the human heart--its outcome can never be taken for granted. Palmer proposes practical and hopeful ways to learn how to hold the tensions of our differences in a manner that can restore a government "of the people, by the people, for the people." --Adapted from publisher description.
