Hailed in The New York Times Book Review as "the single best book written in recent years on the sweep of American political history," this groundbreaking work divides our nation's history into three "regimes," each of which lasts many, many decades, allowing us to appreciate as never before the slow steady evolution of American politics, government, and law. The three regimes, which mark longer periods of continuity than traditional eras reflect, are Deferential and Republican, from the colonial period to the 1820s; Party and Democratic, from the 1830s to the 1930s; and Populist and Bureaucratic, from the 1930s to the present. Praised by The Economist as "a feast to enjoy" and by Foreign Affairs as "a masterful and fresh account of U.S. politics," here is a major contribution to the history of the United States-an entirely new way to look at our past, our present, and our future-packed with provocative and original observations about American public life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A thought-provoking book, and anyone interested in US history or politics will want to be familiar with it. Highly recommended.-CHOICE
One of the most engaging and accessible portraits of America's political evolution of recent years...if I were asked to name the single best book written in recent years on the sweep of American political history, I'd answer America's Three Regimes.-New York Times Book Review
He is breezy without being glib, and original without being eccentric. Even if you don't find the idea of Mr. Keller's three regimes illuminating, his book is. Never misty-eyed, he keeps finding the right anecdote to support his view of American exceptionalism...his book is a feast to enjoy.-The Economist
A masterful and fresh account of U.S. politics... a well-constructed and fast-paced historical narrative with a powerful analytic model make for a book that will provoke and engage specialists while providing less seasoned readers in the United States and abroad with a very useful and accessible introduction to the development of U.S. politics.-Foreign Affairs
For students of American history, a thesis worth exploring.-Kirkus Reviews
Professor Morton Keller of Brandeis has performed an important service with this brilliant, engaging new book.... In America's Three Regimes, Morton Keller has produced a valuable, highly readable survey of American political history that answers many of the questions about government and the people that we ask today. This is the epitome of pleasurable reading.... Kudos to Professor Keller and congratulations to those lucky enough to encounter his book.-The Weekly Standard
