"I can think of no better introduction to American politics than The Princeton Encyclopedia of American Political History. The editors, led by the distinguished historian Michael Kazin, have done a superb job of balancing traditional and innovative approaches to their subject and in assembling essays that are authoritative, insightful, and accessible. This work will quickly become an indispensable guide to the political institutions, ideas, issues, and movements that have shaped and sometimes convulsed the United States across its history. A major accomplishment."--Gary Gerstle, Vanderbilt University

"The Princeton Encyclopedia of American Political History will appeal both to libraries (at the local, school, and university level) and to readers outside the field, as well as to students and teachers at every level."--Jane Dailey, University of Chicago

"Seldom can anyone in any area of American history say that there is not some competing or closely related work in the field. But the editors of this encyclopedia can in fact do so. This is a useful, significant, and enduring reference book in an important area of American history. It will be used by general readers, students from high school through graduate school, and of course scholars."--Jean H. Baker, Goucher College
