"Ira Katznelson and Martin Shefter have brought together an illustrious group of scholars, exactly the right ones to bring the role of international influences back into the study of American political development. A beautifully written introduction is followed by chapters that present insightful observations, interesting surveys, and clear and novel, provocative arguments."--Lisa Martin, Harvard University"This book focuses on a very important issue--why, how, and under what conditions do geopolitics, trade, and by implication other international forces unmistakably influence American politics? The contributors have done so at a very opportune time. This is the best guide available for grasping the domestic consequences of war, trade, migration, and other such powerful forces."--Richard Valelly, Swarthmore CollegeKatznelson, Ira is the author of 'Shaped by War and Trade International Influences on American Political Development' with ISBN 9780691057040 and ISBN 0691057044.
