  • 1. Introduction; 2. Policy change; 3. Public opinion; 4. Advocacy: how Americans try to influence Congress; 5. The impact of advocacy on congressional action; 6. Advocacy, information, and policy innovation; 7. Conclusions.
"Between one election and the next, members of Congress introduce thousands of bills. What determines which become law? Is it the public? Do we have government "of the people, by the people, for the people?" Or is it those who have the resources to organize and pressure government who get what they want? In the first study ever of a random sample of policy proposals, Paul Burstein finds that the public can get what it wants - but mainly on the few issues that attract its attention. Does this mean organized interests get what they want? Not necessarily - on most issues there is so little political activity that it hardly matters. Politics may be less of a battle between the public and organized interests than a struggle for attention. American society is so much more complex than it was when the Constitution was written that we may need to reconsider what it means, in fact, to be a democracy"-- Provided by publisher.

  • The civic constitution : revisiting four eras of civic founding and refounding
  • Making liberty popular : revolutionaries and "common sense" constitutionalism, declaring independence and forming new state republics
  • "We, the quarreling people" and the unfinished constitution : contentions of antislavery activists, Shaysites, and antifederalists in the dynamics of constitutional creation
  • Pursuing equality : abolitionists, antislavery constitutionalism, and pursuit of national reconstruction
  • Claiming justice : suffragists, gender justice constitutionalism, and pursuit of national transformation
  • The complexities of a civic founders' constitution.
"The role of the Constitution in American political history is contentious not simply because of battles over meaning. Equally important is precisely who participated in contests over meaning. Was it simply judges, or did legislatures have a strong say? And what about the public's role in effecting constitutional change? In The Civic Constitution, Elizabeth Beaumont focuses on the last category, and traces the efforts of citizens to reinvent constitutional democracy during four crucial eras: the revolutionaries of the 1770s and 1780s; the civic founders of state republics and the national Constitution in the early national period; abolitionists during the antebellum and Civil War eras; and, finally, suffragists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Throughout, she argues that these groups should be recognized as founders and co-founders of the U.S. Constitution. Though often slighted in modern constitutional debates, these women and men developed distinctive constitutional creeds and practices, challenged existing laws and social norms, expanded the boundaries of citizenship, and sought to translate promises of liberty, equality, and justice into more robust and concrete forms. Their civic ideals and struggles not only shaped the text, design, and public meaning of the U.S. Constitution, but reconstructed its membership and transformed the fundamental commitments of the American political community. An innovative expansion on the concept of popular constitutionalism, The Civic Constitution is a vital contribution to the growing body of literature on how ordinary people have shaped the parameters of America's fundamental laws"-- Provided by publisher.
