The history of America is a history of reform, and as a society, we have always sought to build a better mousetrap. Richard Ellis and Michael Nelson have assembled a stimulating selection of reform ideas in this handy volume, and they have let advocates and detractors of these ideas make their best case. This book is ideal for classroom discussion guaranteed to stir the pot and get students thinking about the world as it is and as it might be. --- Larry J. Sabato, University of Virginia
