Nature and History in American Political Development by James W. Ceaser
Book DescriptionIn this inaugural volume of the Alexis de Tocqueville Lectures, political scientist James Ceaser traces the way certain ideas, including nature, history, and religion- which he calls foundational ideas - have been understood and used by statesmen and public intellectuals over the course of American history, from the Puritans to the current day.Three critical commentators challenge Ceaser's arguments in several ways. They suggest that other ideas may be considered foundational, and they prod him to clarify further how foundational ideas work politically. Ceaser responds with vigor, and the result is a spirited debate about large and enduring questions in American politics.

Reconstructing America, Paperback (August 1997)
For many, America has become the primary symbol of all that is grotesque, deadening and oppressive. It is time, this text argues, to reaffirm confidence in American principles and remember that the US forged a system of liberal democratic government that has shaped the destiny of the modern world.
Liberal Democracy and Political Science, Paperback (September 1992)
Argues that political scientists in a liberal democracy bear a special responsibility that goes beyond their academic pursuits. The author concludes with a case study - an analysis of the susceptibility of political culture to the influence of intellectuals and critics of the Constitution.
Presidential Selection, Paperback (June 1979)» View all books by James W. Ceaser
Examining the development of the process of presidential selection, this book contends that many of the major purposes of the selection system as it was formerly understood have been ignored by reformers and modern scholars. It identifies a set of criteria for a selection system and analyzes and evaluates the changes in the selection process.
