MEDIA REVIEWS

"With experienced editors and contributions from scholars of high caliber, The Federal Nation is a well-thought out and cohesively organized volume that engages and advances research on federalism." - James Pfiffner, University Professor, School of Public Policy, George Mason University

"The breadth of authors is distinguished and impressive in this wide-ranging book on contemporary American federalism. The subject of federalism is approached from various standpoints: historical, comparative, issue-based, legal/constitutional and functional. Federalism is at the very heart of the American system. Writing and controversy surrounding the presidency of George W. Bush have tended to be overwhelmingly concerned with foreign policy and, to a slightly lesser extent, with the growth of presidential power and authority. The Federal Nation shifts the focus to Bush s big government conservatism in the context of relations between Washington and the state and local governments. This is an excellent approach and a significant contribution to the field." - John Dumbrell, Professor of Government, School of Government and International Affairs, Durham University
