Volgy (political science, U. of Arizona) contends that most elected officials are the very opposite of the popular image that tends towards suspicion and distrust of public servants; rather, they are hardworking, honest people whose real work goes unnoticed by most of their constituents and the media. He draws on interviews with about 300 elected officials from all over the U.S. to support his case. He also puts forth a call to action, warning that true democracy could be lost if citizens don't get involved. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
