Hudson's work, American Democracy in Peril offers an intriguing examination of 8 challenges to democracy in America. These challenges are: 1. Separation of powers 2. The imperial judiciary 3. Radical individualism 4. Citizen participation 5. Elections without the People's voice 6. The privilege position of business 7. Economic inequality 8. The national security state. The book does take a particular position, so you can say it is biased, but then again the author is up front that he is stating his views rather than merely offering a survey.

America’s future, 4. th. e. The individualistic American values democracy because it helps her or him to lead a personal life freely, without government getting in the way. At the same time, patriotic Americans believe democracy imposes obligations-the duty to vote, for example, or to support the government in times of crisis such as war. Many Americans associate democracy with particular constitutional features, such as the separation of powers and the Bill of Rights. If we are to analyze various challenges to democracy intelligently, we need to clarify some of this confusion about what democracy means. We need some sophisticated standards to use in evaluating the degree and kind of threat each of the challenges we examine poses for democratic politics.
