Abstract:The dissertation considers mechanisms for bringing public policy into correspondence with public opinion. It compares the standard accounts of this mechanism, "textbook democracy," with an alternative account, "anticipatory democracy." In brief, elite perceptions of public opinion---developed in a variety of ways---appear to shape public policy not only through channels of political control but also through the demands and practices of interest groups that are themselves subject, in varying ways, to the influence of public opinion.
