Pluralism at Yale: The Culture of Political Science in America explores the relationship between personal experience and academic theories of American politics. Through a detailed examination of the Yale University Department of Political Science between 1955 and 1970, including interviews with many of the political scientists involved, this book traces the way ""pluralism,"" a predominately optimistic theory of American democracy that the Yale department worked to develop in those years, helped to support the American political regime. Merelman also analyzes the impact of social and political events on the decline of Yale pluralism and describes pluralism's continued political relevance today. Included are discussions of McCarthyism, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Vietnam War.

"The impressive soundness, even-handedness, and intellectual integrity of Merelman s scholarship is the strongest possible testimony to the quality of training in political science at Yale from 1955 through 1970." Mike Aronoff, Rutgers University
