This introductory chapter discusses the main themes covered in this book, which emerged from the Tercentennial DeVane Lectures at Yale University. These public lectures, attended by students and other residents of New Haven, were aimed at considering the nature and prospects of American democracy. The subsequent chapters explore democracy in America, because democracy, although it is today's universal creed, is by its nature a particular thing.

Keywords:   American democracy, Tercentennial DeVane Lectures, public lectures
