Reflections on the Achievements of Sidney Verba

Kristi Andersen
Published Online: 2016-04-22 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/for-2016-0008


Sidney Verba’s distinguished career, particularly his books, demonstrate a talent for finding superb collaborators, a deep normative concern about the health of civil society, and a commitment to using social science methods to understand the working of democratic systems. A re-reading of these books shows the development of an increasingly complex theory of political participation undergirding a complex portrait of American representative democracy, with all its flaws and strengths.
