CHOICE Review

Statebuilding from the Margins is a superb edited volume that focuses on a range of policies to demonstrate the richness and complexity of state-building during the Progressive Era. Chapters cover civil rights policy, prohibition, juvenile justice, corruption, animal welfare and wildlife protection, and housing policy. The volume presents challenges to existing scholarship on American political development and state-building. It provides for a less top-down approach and embraces the richness and complexity of early state-building. The focus is less on policy and bureaucratic elites and more on public and private policy makers and reformers. Rather than trying to find a parsimonious theory of state-building, the authors and editors embrace complexity. The focus of many of the chapter authors on subnational governments is particularly useful, as is the focus on the interaction between public and private institutions. Overall, the volume represents an important contribution to the understanding of the development of the American state and its complicated developmental path. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections. --Jason Arthur Pierceson, University of Illinois at Springfield
