TikkunEmpirically rich and intellectually provocative essays.
— Theda Skocpol
A collection of essays by current political scientists and social historians who decipher the major shifts in political alignments between society and the political parties.
"'The New Deal Order is dead,' the editors of this book write, offering their collection of provocative essays as 'a historical autopsy.' Calling on some of the leading writers in political economy--including Thomas Ferguson, Alan Brinkley, Ira Katznelson, and Thomas Byrne Edsall--the editors present a detailed look at how the New Deal was formed and where it lost its social-democratic potential. . . . This book contains many wide-ranging and stimulating pieces of revisionist history at its best."--The Progressive
"Empirically rich and intellectually provocative essays."--Theda Skocpol, Tikkun
