"Editors Skowronek and Glassman present seventeen essays that collectively explain the history of America's political development. . . . A compelling and provocative narrative."—Choice



"A manifesto for the study of the United States' often peculiar politics, policies and institutions in historical perspective. . . . The essays in this volume emphasize the importance of political actors within institutional, systemic, and historical contexts for the development of American politics."—Australasian Journal of American Studies
