Reviews

"[Hofstadter's] account stands as the most balanced and authoritative analysis we have of a formidable and apparently permanent force in American politics." --The New York Times Book Review"Hofstadter's essays . . .are calm, clear, dispassionate and devastating-a joy to read." --Harper's"Hofstadter's status theory helps us understand a political history that goes far beyond the issues of the fifties and sixties which it was invoked to explain." --New Republic
