America’s Biggest Issues: Conservatism vs. Progressivism

Progressivism in America: Past, Present and Future

David B. For several decades conservatives set the political agenda in the United States, allowing them to focus the conversation on topics such as tax cuts, national security, and social issues. It is increasingly becoming apparent, however, that this has begun to change. Factors such as the election of the first African-American President and the increasing diversity of the population, the dramatic rise of income inequality, and the social liberalism of younger Americans indicate that progressive political ideas are more influential today than at any point in four decades. This book is the first to offer a comprehensive overview of progressive politics, combining historical analysis, a discussion of policy priorities today, and a survey of the challenges ahead. Featuring essays by leading scholars, analysts, and commentators, it is an indispensable guide to the ideas and debates that will shape American politics in the coming years.

Or, as the rise of the Tea Party and the midterm elections of and seem to indicate, were the events of simply an aberration—a short-term reaction to the economic collapse that occurred in the final months of the Bush administration? What policies should be put in place to help us return to an era of prosperity? And how should we meet the many other challenges we face—such as climate change—both at home and abroad? In an effort to answer these questions, the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute joined forces with the Clinton Institute for American Studies at University College Dublin to host a major international conference that would bring together a distinguished group of historians, economists, political scientists, policy makers, and journalists. Moreover, given the parallels between the socioeconomic factors that gave rise to the onset of the Great Depression and Great Recession—including that vast disparity in wealth evident in both crises—the organizers of the conference were especially interested in exploring how best to fashion a progressive response to the current crisis.
