The New American Political System

Edited by Anthony King
American Enterprise Institute, 1978
407 pp. $6.75

Ten authors analyze the disappearance of a political system based on cohesive, identifiable voting blocs, a system which reached its apogee in the New Deal. They find that coalition politics has given way to "atomized" politics and that there is no reigning "public philosophy." Chapters deal with the presidency, Congress, the Supreme Court, the parties, the states. A first-rate book.
