Annotation. Although the US is proud of being a secular state, religion lies at the heart of American politics.

"Morone's lively essays complicate the monolithic view that Americans fear government, celebrate markets, and act as individualists. Yes, they do resist government's meddling in their lives; but given their puritanical bent, they readily exhort the government to ensure that their neighbors don't drink, smoke, take drugs, or have sex with the wrong kind of person. They are also communitarians who go the extra mile for one another. Yet they are always nervous about the many outsiders banging on their democratic door--Blacks, women, immigrants. Rather than a static culture, then, Morone gives the reader a dynamic one that is constantly being remade by those who pass through that door. Morone's readers will come away with a fresh look at America's vibrant and often contentious political culture"--

Scholars working in or sympathetic to American political development (APD) share a commitment to accurately understanding the history of American politics - and thus they question stylized facts about America's political evolution. Like other approaches to American politics, APD prizes analytical rigor, data collection, the development and testing of theory, and the generation of provocative hypotheses. Much APD scholarship indeed overlaps with the American politics subfield and its many well developed literatures on specific institutions or processes (for example Congress, judicial politics, or party competition), specific policy domains (welfare policy, immigration), the foundations of (in)equality in American politics (the distribution of wealth and income, race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexual and gender orientation), public law, and governance and representation. What distinguishes APD is careful, systematic thought about the ways that political processes, civic ideals, the political construction of social divisions, patterns of identity formation, the making and implementation of public policies, contestation over (and via) the Constitution, and other formal and informal institutions and processes evolve over time - and whether (and how) they alter, compromise, or sustain the American liberal democratic regime. APD scholars identify, in short, the histories that constitute American politics. They ask: what familiar or unfamiliar elements of the American past illuminate the present? Are contemporary phenomena that appear new or surprising prefigured in ways that an APD approach can bring to the fore? If a contemporary phenomenon is unprecedented then how might an accurate understanding of the evolution of American politics unlock its significance? Featuring contributions from leading academics in the field, The Oxford Handbook of American Political Development provides an authoritative and accessible analysis of the study of American political development.
