Canada and the United States are consistently ranked among the mostdemocratic countries in the world, yet voices expressing concern aboutthe quality of these democracies are becoming louder and moreinsistent. Critics maintain that the two countries suffer from a"democratic deficit," a gap between performance andexpectation that raises profound questions about the legitimacy andeffectiveness of their democratic institutions. "Imperfect Democracies" brings together Canadian and Americanscholars to compare and contrast the democratic deficit in the twonations. They evaluate the ways in which these institutions do or donot live up to democratic ideals of popular sovereignty and politicalequality, focusing on these key questions: Why talk about a democraticdeficit? In what ways, are the Canadian and American democraciesfalling short? Do they do so in similar or different ways? Whatcan be done to remedy the deficit? And what can each country learn fromthe experiences of the other? This book makes an important contribution to the field of democratictheory and the study of democratic institutions.
