From the Outside In : World War II and the American State

Summary: From the Outside In examines the profound impact of World War II on American government. The book argues that the wartime and immediate postwar experiences of the 1940s transformed and redirected the policies and government institutions of the New Deal. In a work that makes significant contributions to the study of U.S. politics and history, Bartholomew Sparrow proposes a new model of the state and of ""state-building."" The author applies this model, which derives from the resource dependence perspective, to the historical record of four areas of public policy: social security, labo.
