Michael J. Sandel discusses Democracy's Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy.

Professor Sandel talked about his recent book, Democracy's Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy, published by Harvard University Press.

It also examines citizens' frustration with government and the unraveling of the moral fabric of community, which the government seems unable to stem.
