"The finest work of a fine historian."--C. Vann Woodward"In contrast to so much of recent American historical writing, "The Impending Crisis "is history in the grand tradition. Its concerns are philosophical; it asks questions which have been eclipsed by newer interests. It seeks to examine the nature of the political process and the underlying patterns of historical causation. On these subjects, Potter's insights are profound and original."--Eric Foner, "The New York Times Book Review""It is magnificent."--Walter Clemons, "Newsweek"
