U.S.A. 2012
After the Middle-Class Revolution

190 pages | CQ Press
In this provocative and credible vision of middle-class revolt, Kenneth M. Dolbeare and Janette Kay Hubbell issue a clarion call for the economic, social, and political revolution that they predict will revitalize American democracy for the twenty-first century.The authors propose specific, practical measures for solving the systemic problems they foresee. Among their prescriptions are routine and binding national referendums on all major issues, firmly regulated campaign funding and media access, elections opened to multiple political parties and proportional voting, and a drastically redesigned judicial system.
