The Obama election slogan of Yes We Can seemed to voice a hope that new leadership would put right what had gone wrong with America. Within a short time, however, Yes We Can gave way to No We Cant, as Americas government became enmeshed in gridlock and political polarisation. This led to a debate as to whether American government was broken and in need of substantial procedural and political reform.

This volume, with contributors from both the US and UK, offers an international perspective on one of the most important political questions of our time. They review the causes of Americas governmental dysfunction and assess what can be done to put matters right.
