If you want to know why the Constitution became a 'living' document, why the size and scope of government can't be limited, and how we got here, you must get it. (Peter W. Schramm, Executive Director of the John M. Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs and a Professor of Political Science at Ashland University)

Edited by Claremont Institute senior fellows John Marini and Ken Masugi, The Progressive Revolution in Politics and Political Science brings together eleven essays to explain the conflict between classic natural right and historicism that has been at the core of the Western philosophic tradition, and which plays itself out in an American context as the conflict between our country's founding principles and the modern administrative state. John Marini, who perhaps more than anyone has plumbed the depths of Progressive thought and found its source in Hegelian historicism, provides a breathtakingly accurate account of the Progressive transformation of the American Minddd (Claremont Review of Books)

By D. Mahoney on August 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
This volume comprises eleven essays by academic political scientists assessing the effect of the Progressive movement on their discipline and field of study. The essays are all, or virtually all, expanded versions of papers presented during the centenary convention of the American Political Science Association in late 2003. There are two sections of five essays each: the first dealing with the Progressive attack on the founding principles of the American regime; and the second dealing with the effect of Progressive "reforms" in practice. The central, and by far the longest, essay, by Edward Erler, concerns the Progressive transformation of American constitutional law, and that essay acts as a kind of hinge connecting the two main sections of the book.

Probably the most important essays are the keynote essays of each section, written by Thomas West and John Marini, respectively. West, whose published writings include both esoteric commentaries on ancient political philosophy and also sharp contemporary political analysis, finds the roots of the Progressive revolution in the philosophy of Rousseau and Hegel, which is antithetical to the natural rights tradition at the heart of American constitutional government. Marini, perhaps the most astute observer of the transformation of the American political system wrought by the Progressives, concentrates on the Progressives' substitution of the administrative state for the politics of self-government.

Each of the eleven essays is worthy of note in its own right, and all are redolent of serious research and profound reflection.

By DS on August 29, 2015
Format: Paperback
One star only because negative 5 stars is unavailable. A pathetic shill for modern day crony capitalism by a right wing propaganda mill that tries to paint a simplistic, black and white picture of "constitutionalism" vs. "progressivism" as a cover up for the real right wing agenda of corporate welfare (aka "subsidy"). In "Main Currents of American Thought" ( http://xroads.virginia.edu/~HYPER/hypertex.html#t ), Vernon L. Parrington gives the real history of the American "leviathan" state that originated from the right and its industrial ambition. It was the left, the Jeffersonian and Jacksonian Democratic-Republicans as opposed to the big business Federalist and Whigs who advocated for states rights and limited government. In typical demonic deception, the right wing today tries to parade itself around as everything it's not in order to keep the focus off what it really is — minority rule by vested business interest to the detriment of everyone else. The Claremont Institute claims to stand for "family values", but it was the acquisitive, capitalist, industrial right that created a competitive economic system rooted in greed that has destroyed traditional family ties.
