This text examines the profound impact of World War II on American government. It argues that the wartime and immediate postwar experiences of the 1940s transformed and redirected the policies and government institutions of the New Deal. The author proposes a new model of the state and of "state-building"; he then applies this model, which derives from the resource dependence perspective, to the historical record of four areas of public policy: social security, labour-management relations, public finance and military procurement.
