In this important and original book, J. Richard Piper provides the most comprehensive examination to date of the profound impact of ideological prescriptions on twentieth century American politics. Piper analyzes the institutional and constitutional developments associated with the American conservative-liberal paradigm from the New Deal to the present, focusing on constitutional jurisprudence, presidential-congressional relations, the role of the judiciary, federalism, and the administrative state. Concluding that America's competing constitutional philosophies frequently serve not as ends in themselves but as instruments for attaining power and policy goals, Piper raises significant questions about the future of the conservative-liberal dichotomy that has characterized American politics since the New Deal. Ideologies and Institutions is unique in its focus on institutional prescriptions and its integration and synthesis of extensive history, political science, and sociology literature. Anyone interested in constitutional issues, political history, and the distinctions between the liberal and conservative philosophies will find Ideologies and Institutions valuable.

Review:

This is an impressive piece of scholarship and teaching. It will be of use to both students and teachers. His essential argument is so right: ideas do count. (Samuel H. Beer)

A valuable, timely contribution to the study of American intellectual history. (Choice)

This interesting and informative book is a treasure trove for those interested in governance. It is readable, appropriate for general audiences interested in American politics, college students, and professionals interested in political science, history, and public affairs. ... Piper provides a welcome addition to the new institutionalism research. (Perspectives On Political Science)

This book examines the malleable ideas about government that have competed with one another in American public life over the past sixty years. . . . What are the governmental implications of conservatism and liberalism? What have been the institutional prescriptions of each ideology? What impact have their prescriptions had? Those are the questions addressed in this book. Piper's is an informed, useful, and systematic analysis.... (M.J. Heale The Journal Of American History, Vol.85)

A sophisticated work...ambitious...thoroughly researched...a good example of the renaissance of political history that traces changes in liberal and conservative ideologies, policies, and governmental institutions...packed with factual narrative and thought-provoking insights...a tremendous amount of research in secondary and published primary sources that the author has done for this work. (Patrick D. Reagan H-Net Review)

Piper has produced a stimulating piece of scholarship on an arresting topic. . . . The interaction among ideologies, parties, and governing institutions is one of the most complex, elusive, and yet fascinating areas of American political science. This rich, well-written, scholarly book reflects that elusivenss and complexity, and it also makes a comprehensive and intellectually engaging effort to unravel it. ... Piper should be commended for having the intellectual ambition to tackle a difficult but essential subject. (American Political Science Review)

This book examines the malleable ideas about government that have competed with one another in American public life over the past sixty years. . . .
