"Republic, Lost" is an excellent book, filled with great information and examples about how our government works. I first learned about this book when Jon Stewart interviewed Mr Lessig on The Daily Show (definitely worth checking out online!). The very knowledgeable and eminently qualified, Mr Lessig provides well documented and thoughtful analysis of how campaign financing is greatly contributing to Congressional gridlock and is harming our country. Further, he provides a number of potential solutions which range from feasible to a little extreme and crazy. One of the best aspects of this book is that Mr Lessig's criticism crosses party lines and shows a great deal of integrity. This is an important book for people to read and hopefully become motivated to participate and help to save our democracy.
