0 Reviews
This collection of writings about political parties shows how nineteenth-century American and European authors assessed the changing roles of these newly prominent institutions. Their reactions ranged from outrage to grudging admiration — reactions which are not so different from those so often seen today. This reader makes accessible to modern readers a variety of classic texts, which still shape today’s views of partisan politics. This unique collection will be an important resource for students and scholars of both political science and history.
