Democracy is invoked to support the vast majority of the world's governments. We have been talking about it for thousands of years, and attempting to put it into practice for hundreds, believing in it as the logical culmination of human affairs. But if both North Korea and the United States consider themselves democratic – and, indeed, both liberals and conservatives, capitalists and communists, bureaucrats and populists – isn't the idea meaningless? This is the biography of one of the world's most powerful ideas, a belief in the value of the collective, a battle between abstract rights and passionate convictions. In the end, only its citizens can decide on its fate.

Frontier Democracy examines the debates over state constitutions in the antebellum Northwest (Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin) from the 1820s through the 1850s. This is a book about conversations: in particular, the fights and negotiations over the core ideals in the constitutions that brought these frontier communities to life. Silvana R. Siddali argues that the Northwestern debates over representation and citizenship reveal two profound commitments: the first to fair deliberation, and the second to ethical principles based on republicanism, Christianity, and science. Some of these ideas succeeded brilliantly: within forty years, the region became an economic and demographic success story. However, some failed tragically: racial hatred prevailed everywhere in the region, in spite of reformers' passionate arguments for justice, and resulted in disfranchisement and even exclusion for non-white Northwesterners that lasted for generations.

From the beginning, and at every step along the way, as Americans sought to right to vote, others have fought to stop them. Waldman traces the full story from the founders' debates to today's challenges: a wave of restrictive voting laws, partisan gerrymanders, the flood of campaign money unleashed by Citizens United. The result is a compelling story of our struggle to uphold our most fundamental democratic ideals.
