Review

 
"With the proliferation of scholarly monographs on the conservative movement, this volume's serious engagement with US liberalism is surprisingly refreshing.  Highly Recommended."--Choice




"This impressive collection of thoughtful essays pulls together an all-star roster of prominent historians and promising younger scholars to make an important contribution to our understanding of postwar liberalism."

--Steven M. Gillon, resident historian for The History Channel and author of The Kennedy Assassination--24 Hours After: Lyndon B. Johnson's Pivotal First Day as President

 



"A compelling narrative of the shifting dynamics of ideas and policy on the left end of the political spectrum."--The Journal of American History



"An exciting collection of ten essays exploring liberalism and the New Deal coalition in the twentieth century. . . . a wonderful preview of some interesting new scholarship."--The Journal of Southern History

For years I have tried to define American Liberalism. This collection of essays demonstrates why it is such a difficult position to define. Liberalism in America is a moving target. The only thing that seems to be a consistent notion is that Government should take a more active role in our culture and in attaining our goals of liberty.
