1 The Politics of Major Policy Reform in Postwar America The Politics of Major Policy Reform in Postwar America examines the politics of recent landmark policy in areas such as homeland security, civil rights, health care, immigration, and trade, and it does so within a broad theoretical and historical context. By considering the politics of major programmatic reforms in the United States since the Second World War specifically, courses of action aimed at dealing with perceived public problems agroupof distinguished scholars sheds light on not only significant efforts to ameliorate widely recognized ills in domestic and foreign affairs but also on systemic developments in American politics and government. In sum, this volume provides a comprehensive understanding of how major policy breakthroughs are achieved, stifled, or compromised in a political system conventionally understood as resistant to major change.

9 Acknowledgements This volume grew out the William and Carol Stevenson Conference, which was held at the University of Virginia s Miller Center on November 11 and 12, The William and Carol Stevenson Conference is a biennial event that explores domestic and international issues of national importance. We are deeply grateful to the Stevenson family for their generous and passionate commitment to scholarship that joins rigorous analysis and public affairs. We also would like to thank Governor Gerald Baliles, Director of the Miller Center, for his support of the conference and enthusiastic engagement with its participants during two days of lively and wide-ranging discussion of public policy. We convened a distinguished group of scholars from political science and history in the hope that they might help us better understand the philosophical, historical, and institutional factors that have contributed to the success or failure of major policy reform in United States since the Second World War. The authors probing attention to policies spanning health care and homeland security met, indeed exceeded our expectations. Thanks to their efforts this volume offers new and interesting insights into how contests over public policy are at the heart of contemporary developments in American politics and government. ix
