What is government? From the outside it looks like a security system based on the marriage of land and people, From the inside, it looks like and attempts to create a community. A government is like an oyster, hard on the outside and soft on the inside, and the outside and inside are utterly dependent on each other. p. 24. People who do not know what government is are not likely to know what democracy is either, for democracy is only what the soft inside of the oyster looks like.

In this book, Schattschneider expands upon the theme of his better-known Semisovereign People, that the most important fact about democratic governments is one of sheer scale, . the extraordinarily large numbers of people which are involved in running a democracy compared to any other form of government. This fact has critical consequences for how democracies work and how political debate is organized. It is not possible to understand fully why democratic politics looks the way it does unless you first come to terms with the arguments in this book.
