Reform and Reaction in Twentieth Century American Politics

Synopsis

This volume presents a new theory of American politics developed through an investigation of the alternation of reform and reaction over the last century. By employing historical examples and resurveying the chronological territory chapter by chapter, the study details the development and decline of liberal reform movements and focuses on the similarities between eras of reform and reactionary phases and the interrelationship of reform movements over the decades.
