Is our government dysfunctional? Policy disasters and the constitutional order From high trust to low trust American constitutionalism western-style : trust and direct democracy Pathways to constitutional reform.
"Griffin argues that understanding the decline of trust in government requires investigating the historical circumstances of the last several decades as well as the constitutional experience of the states. In particular, he examines "hybrid democracy", the form of constitutionalism prevailing in California and other western states that combines Madisonian-style representative government with direct democracy."--Provided by publisher.
