Americas federalism is the subject of this collection of essays by Martha Derthick, a leading scholar of American government. She explores the nature of the compound republic - that middle ground between national and locl authority - with attention both to its enduring features and to the changes wrought in the twentieth century by Progressivism, the New Deal, and the civil rights revolution.


Martha Derthick is the former director of the Governmental Studies program at the Brookings Institution. She is retired from the Department of Government and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia, where she taught from 1983 to 1999. She has written five previous Brookings books, including Agency under Stress (1990), The Politics of Deregulation (1985, with Paul J. Quirk), and Policymaking for Social Security (1979).


"Students of American politics wanting to refresh or deepen their understanding of our form of federalism... can turn to Martha Derthick's 'Keeping the Compound Republic: Essays on American Federalism'. Derthick... is a prolific author." --Ralph A. Rossum, Claremont McKenna College, Claremont Review of Books, 10/1/2002 "The work taken as a whole is an entertaining tour through the political thickets surrounding American federalism." --Russell Renka, Southeast Missouri State University, Congress and the Presidency
