Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brilliantly reasoned and persuasively argued. It presents a strong challenge both to ethnocultural and socioeconomic accounts of party origins and to the party-system model of political history itself."--American Historical Review

"An important and innovative departure from the established historiography and . . . a major contribution to our understanding of the formation of America's party system. . . . The Invention of Party Politics stands as a lucid and provocative study of the emergence of modern party politics in the United States. Its impact upon the historiography of Jacksonian politics will be a profound and long lasting one."--Law and History Review

"Reinterpreting the rise of political parties and pro-party thought in America, Leonard challenges the familiar line of argument that the Jacksonian era saw the development of a coherent theory and practice of two-party mass democracy. His book will have a major impact among historians of Jacksonian political, constitutional, and legal history."--Sean Wilentz, Princeton University --This text refers to the Unknown Binding edition.
