This volume explores the full range and depth of the liberal tradition in America and how it has been perceived by political theorists and historians. The contributors weigh the various paradigm shifts in our understanding of American political development according to consensus, polarity and multiple traditions. They break new ground by taking into account African-American and proslavery thought, gender and identity politics, citizenship in the Reconstruction and Progressive eras, and models of SupremeCourt decision-making. "The Liberal Tradition in" "America" questions the effect of viewing American history through these paradigms on the progress of research, and moves the emphasis in research from the development of political ideas to the development of political institutions.
Contributors: Louisa Bertch, David F. Ericson, Carol Horton, Ronald Kahn, Ira Katznelson, Gayle McKeen, Darol Nackenoff, Karen Orren, Stephen Skowronek, and Rogers M. Smith.
