The End of the Republican Era

by

The End of the Republican Era Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The End of the Republican Era, Theodore J. Lowi predicts not only a collapse of the Republican coalition but also the potential collapse of the United States republican experiment at large. Professing that the ideologies of dominant political coalitions contain the seeds of their own destruction, Lowi suggests that the efforts of a new conservative Right to enforce a national, religion-based morality has brought about the demise of the Republican era.

A new, in-depth afterword by Lowi brings the text up to date with a discussion of political events since the books original publication. Noting the appearance of the new Conservative coalition, whose ideology runs counter to that of the traditional Republican party, Lowi affirms that the Republican era did in fact come to an end during the 1990s, having morphed into a Conservative party.

Book News Annotation:

A time-comparative analysis of American leaders during the post-WWII era seeking to determine the extent to which an older Establishment has reproduced itself or given way to a more heterogeneous group of leaders, based on an examination of the religious, educational, and gender characteristics for Who's Who listees during 1950, 1970, and 1992. Focuses on change in the social characteristics of listees over time, and looks at the extent to which religious, educational, and gender groups have been over-represented relative to their numbers in the general population.
