Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Explores the failure of the socialist movement in the US. Draws on contrasts with other industrialized countries and extensive comparisons within the US at the state and city level to promote understanding of how factors such as American values, political structure, and the split between the Socialist Party and mainstream unions combined to seal socialism's fate. Lipset teaches public policy at George Mason University; Marks is professor of political science and founding director of the Center for European Studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
