Fiorina, Medvic comment on “Can Government Do Anything Right?”

cgdar_sm-borderComments on Can Government Do Anything Right?, forthcoming from Polity Books in January 2018:

“This contrarian work is a welcome corrective to the doom and gloom commentary that is so common today.  Not only that, it’s a good read as well.  It will get an intensive workout in college seminars.” — Morris P. Fiorina, Stanford University

“Governing, particularly in democracies, is difficult and often frustrating work. In this vital new book, Alasdair Roberts explains why by identifying the multiple constraints imposed on political leaders. More importantly, he makes a convincing case that, over time, Western governments have successfully adapted to these constraints and have been largely effective at addressing the challenges they face. At a time when so many citizens are disenchanted with their governments, the argument in this book deserves a wide audience.” — Stephen K. Medvic, Franklin & Marshall College
