Democratic Education by Amy Gutmann

Book Description

Who should have the authority to shape the education of citizens in a democracy? This is the central question posed by Amy Gutmann in the first book-length study of the democratic theory of education. The author tackles a wide range of issues, from the democratic case against book banning to the role of teachers' unions in education, as well as the vexed questions of public support for private schools and affirmative action in college admissions.

Spirit of Compromise by Amy Gutmann Spirit of Compromise, Paperback (May 2014)

To govern in a democracy, political leaders have to compromise. When they do not, the result is political paralysis - dramatically demonstrated by the gridlock in Congress in recent years. This book shows why compromise is so important, what stands in the way of achieving it, and how citizens can make defensible compromises more likely.

Identity in Democracy by Amy Gutmann Identity in Democracy, Paperback (August 2004)

Talks about the good, the bad, and the ugly of identity politics. This book addresses fundamental questions of urgency while keeping in focus their relevance to contemporary debates. It shows that identity-group politics is not aberrant but inescapable in democracies because identity groups represent who people are, not only what they want.
