DEMOCRACY FOR REALISTS: WHY ELECTIONS DO NOT PRODUCE RESPONSIVE GOVERNMENT (Princeton University Press, 2016)

Christopher H. Achen is the Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences and Professor of Politics at Princeton University.  His research interest is Political Methodology, particularly in its application to Empirical Democratic Theory, American Politics, and International Relations.  A list of his books would inform you that his work is highly technical and outside the realm of punditry and partisan power politics.  His conclusions about the realities of democracy, which he and co-author, Vanderbilt University Professor of Politics Larry M. Bartels, lay out in their book, DEMOCRACY FOR REALISTS: WHY ELECTIONS DO NOT PRODUCE RESPONSIVE GOVERNMENT, challenge some of our most cherished beliefs about the ability of The People to govern themselves.
