9781403961969: The Roots of American Exceptionalism: Institutions, Culture and Policies

How is the United States different in comparison to other states? Why is it different? Addressing these questions can only be done through comparison of distinctive historical development, paths of institutional evolution and cultural differences as they have developed and manifested themselves through different policies for similar problems. The United States is compared with Sweden on tax policy, Canada on financing medical care, France on abortion policy, and Japan on immigration. Ideal for classroom discussion, The Roots of American Exceptionalism is sure to generate debate and discussion.

From the Inside Flap:

"An ideal text for undergraduate and graduate courses in comparative politics, public policy, and American politics in comparative perspective. Lockhart offers a judicious appraisal of the complex factors that have produced nationally distinct policies and constrain innovative responses to new problems and crises."--Gary P. Freeman, University of Texas
"A provocative tour de force that breathes new life into the comparative study of social policies."--Richard W. Wilson, Rutgers University
"This is a very good, original, and interesting comparison of crucial and topical governmental policies that should appeal to students and produce productive discussions....The analysis is crisp, and the writing is engaging."--Paul Manuel, Saint Anselm College

About the Author:
