Progressivism and the New Democracy


Political scientists and historians look at the achievements and failures of the reforms of the beginning of the 20th century in the US, and explicate the underlying political vision of an executive-centered government and participatory democracy. Emphasizing the enduring heritage of the reform tradition, they consider to extent to which problems at the end of the century resemble those at the beginning, and investigate whether there are roads not taken then that could be reexamined now.
