Overview

The Rhythms of American Politics is the first book to systematically explore the relationships between long macroeconomic movements in the United States and the cyclical nature of American politics. The book begins with an overview of the cycles of history, along with an examination of the rhythms of American politics. It then moves into technological change and the effects it has on the actions of the political and electoral populations. The authors also explore the common devisiveness in the long-wave trough and progressivism in the upswing of the economy. Finally, they depict the overall synthesized actions of the macroeconomy and political activity, and conclude with an assessment of the past in an effort to discover details of the future rhythms of the economy related to politics.
