Dr. Abbott believes that the history of American political thought can be understood as a series of conversations and debates. As with the previous editions, this current edition places political theories in the context of the debates and conversations of men and women who have struggled to extricate themselves and the nation from crises. During these crises, there have been moments when the American muse has been captured and political understanding has been enlarged. The author places special emphasis on those moments and the writers who have conveyed clarity and vision to the American political experience. This new edition moves beyond the Cold War years through the "Reagan Revolution" and includes updated commentary on the political thought and literature of the feminist and civil rights movements.
