Amy Argues for Government’s Key Role

With the presidential campaign heating up, Professor of Politics Douglas Amy has transformed his website, Government Is Good, into a new book in which he argues that, despite the many claims to the contrary, government on the whole is valuable. In Government Is Good: An Unapologetic Defense of a Vital Institution, he discusses the benefits the American people receive from the government, he disputes the many misleading complaints made about the government, and he points to the ways we can revitalize democracy in this country.
