Summary
An immediate bestseller upon its publication in 1880, the anonymously penned "Democracy" prompted widespread speculation and guessing games as to its author's identity. It is the story of Mrs. Lightfoot Lee, a society widow, and Silas Ratcliffe, the most influential member of the Senate, who, throughout the novel, pursues Mrs. Lee while at the same time battling her for power. Set in Washington in the 1870s, "Democracy" presents a scathing and incisive look at the intricate inner workings of politics and corruption that remains relevant today. --Publisher
