Editorial Reviews

Review


"The study of APD has for too long been preoccupied with liberalism. This book makes a critical contribution to APD by brilliantly addressing the impact of conservatism. It is comprehensive in scope and displays a keen grasp of the critical, theoretical, historical, and institutional questions at stake. It is a must read for all serious students of APD."--Marc Landy, Professor of Political Science, Boston College


"In the able hands of editors Brian Glenn and Steve Teles, Conservatism and American Political Development shows exactly how crucial conservatives have been in shaping the modern state. In careful studies of three central policy areas, conservatives appear no longer as the "cardboard-cutout villains" but rather as the leading characters. Smart and fresh, this volume is a must read for understanding the character, transformation, and persistent influence of contemporary conservatism."--Meg Jacobs, Massachusetts Institute of Technology


"Glenn and Teles have compiled a highly instructive volume on the post-New Deal trajectory of public policy and political development in crucial political arenas. The authors' careful micro-studies provide an important corrective to standard accounts of liberal dominance and subsequent retrenchment--without giving conservative triumphalists much to cheer about."--Michael Greve, American Enterprise Institute
