A New Republic: A History of the United States in the Twentieth Century by John Lukacs

InA New Republic,one of Americas most respected historians offers a major statement on the nature of our political system and a critical look at the underpinnings of our society. American democracy, says John Lukacs, has been transformed from an exercise in individual freedom and opportunity to a bureaucratic system created by and for the dominance of special groups. His book, first published in 1984 asOutgrowing Democracy,is now reissued with a new introduction, in which Lukacs explains his methodology, and a new final chapter, which sums up Lukacss thoughts on American democracy today. Reviews of the earlier edition A rich, subtle, and often ingenious argument . . . an eloquent, provocative, but disturbing book.Edwin M. Yoder, Jr.,Washington Post Book World Mr. Lukacs is an original and subtle historian, and [this book] is an engaging intellectual surprise party. . . . I was continuously enchanted by the play of his ideasby the sharpness of his distinctions and the acuteness of his descriptions.Naomi Bliven,New Yorker It has been a long time since Americans were offered such a provocative interpretation of their historical predicament. . . . We would be foolish not to examine it closely.Laurence Tool,Society
