Editorial Reviews

Review

Inspired by the writings of Leo Strauss, this collection of essays explores how the original U.S. founding was contested and challenged by the Civil War, industrialization, and the rise of the progressive era in the writings of such diverse thinkers as John Calhoun, Jefferson Davis, Abraham Lincoln, Henry Adams, and Jane Adams…. A good addition to collections on U.S. political thought or history…. Recommended. General readers and undergraduate collections and above. (D. Schultz, Hamline University CHOICE)
