Summary
  • "James W. Ceaser is our country's leading scholar in American politics. These venturesome essays display his originality, inventive formulations, and theoretical insight."--Harvey Mansfield, Stanford University
  • "James Ceaser, a prominent student of American political thought, never fails to instruct and provoke. The essays included in Designing a Polity are no exception. The eye-opening chapter on Alexis de Tocqueville should spark a reconsideration of the foundations of American democracy and of the distinctive features of Tocqueville's account."--William A. Galston, Ezra Zilkha Chair in Governance Studies, The Brookings Institution --Book Jacket
