The book begins by examining the setting against which government and politics operates in Britain and the US, noting aspects of the history and social structure of each country before exploring the concept of political culture. The underlying ideals and values of British and American people are compared and the book goes on to analyse the constitution before considering the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government in detail. In addition, the nature of American federalism and moves towards federal devolution in the UK are assessed. Political parties, the media and elections, pressure groups and voting are all extensively covered, with some concluding thoughts on the current condition of democracy in Britain and the US.

Das Vertrauen in die Politiker ist an einem Tiefpunkt angelangt, die repräsentative Politik steckt in einer Krise. Ist die Demokratie am Ende? Ist unsere Gesellschaft vom Virus der Entpolitisierung befallen? Simon Tormey zeigt in diesem provokativ-anregenden Buch, dass das Gegenteil der Fall ist. Die Bürgerinnen und Bürger sehen sich zunehmend selbst als Hauptakteure der Politik, was das Ende der repräsentativen Politik sein könnte, wie wir sie bisher kannten. Gleichzeitig entwickeln sich aktuell aufregend neue Formen politischen Engagements und damit auch Chancen auf eine grundlegende Erneuerung der Demokratie. Demokratische Repräsentation war ein Produkt der nationalstaatlichen Modernisierung. Die neue Politik entspricht der individualisierten Welt, in der sich die Demokratie nun einrichtet. Sie wird bestimmt von multiplen Identitäten und komplexen Geografien, von Migration, Globalisierung und vielschichtigen Souveränitäten, von staatlichen und nichtstaatlichen Machtquellen. Da das Vertrauen in althergebrachte Institutionen erschüttert ist, bleibt die repräsentative Demokratie zwar bestehen, wird aber um und ausgebaut, sie wird "demokratischer". Wir sind in eine Zeit des Rollenwandels der Parteien und der Politiker eingetreten: Repräsentative Institutionen stehen neben neuen bürgerschaftlichen Initiativen, die durch soziale Medien schnell zusammenfinden und den unterschiedlichsten Bedürfnissen eine Stimme geben. Sie wirken hin auf eine unmittelbare politische Resonanz, auf Kontrolle und Korrektur von politischen Entscheidungen. Simon Tormey ergründet die gegenwärtigen Veränderungen, indem er ein vielfältiges Tableau von Beispielen betrachtet, von der Situation in Griechenland und den Protesten in Spanien, Brasilien und der Türkei, bis hin zu der Entstehung neuer Initiativen wie Podemos, Anonymous und Occupy.

Gleichheit oder Oligarchie, Individualismus oder Unfreiheit, Wahrheit oder Fake News – die Welt, wie wir sie kannten, steht am Scheideweg. Viel hat der Westen selbst dazu beigetragen. Aber er hat auch mächtige Feinde, die seine Institutionen mit allen Mitteln – von der Finanzierung des Rechtspopulismus in Europa bis zum Cyberwar – untergraben wollen. Wer diese Gegner sind, wie sie vorgehen und wie bedrohlich die Lage ist, das beschreibt das aufsehenerregende neue Buch von Tim Snyder. Mit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges hatten die liberalen Demokratien des Westens gesiegt. Von nun an würde die Menschheit eine friedvolle, globalisierte Zukunft erwarten. Doch das war ein Irrtum. Seit Putin seine Macht in Russland etabliert hat, rollt eine Welle des Autoritarismus von Osten nach Westen, die Europ... a erfasst hat und mit Donald Trump auch im Weißen Haus angekommen ist. Tim Snyder, Autor des Weltbestsellers «Über Tyrannei», beschreibt in seinem Buch den Aufstieg dieser neuen «rechten Internationalen», schildert ihre bedrohlichen Ziele und zeigt, wie sehr die Grundlagen unserer Demokratie in Gefahr sind.
