History of American Political Thought is a unique one-volume companion to the study of American political thought that provides concise introductions to the most important and influential thinkers in American history, of all political persuasions from all time periods. The editors have assembled many of the nation's best scholars in political thought to present portraits of the American statesmen, activists, and writers who have had a truly significant and lasting influence on American political life.

In short and accessible essays on such statesmen as George Washington and Franklin Roosevelt, writers like James Fenimore Cooper and Mark Twain, and activists such as W.E.B. DuBois and Betty Friedan, the authors describe each figure's historical context and achievements, present a thorough analysis of their most notable writings and speeches, and highlight the significance of their work to our political heritage. History of American Political Thought not only provides a valuable resource for reference and research for students and scholars alike; it also displays the very tapestry of a growing country, woven through with the innovations in thought that have shaped and challenged―and continue to challenge―America's understanding of itself.

About the Author:

Bryan-Paul Frost is the James A. and Kaye L. Crocker Endowed Professor in Political Science as well as Adjunct Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Louisiana. Jeffrey Sikkenga is Assistant Professor of Politcal Science at Ashland University. He is also an adjunct fellow at the John M. Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs.

Review:

This collection of forty-five separately authored essays of fifty-five American political thinkers is at once diverse and unified. While this collection establishes a consensual Lockean philosophical founding, this founding, despite its internal tensions, is a philosophically articulate and coherent set of principles that underwrite the American regime of liberty. (Hisory of Political Thought)

Frost and Sikkenga have done a great service for students and teachers of American political thought in editing this massive volume. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
