This volume has been written specifically for students of the
U.S. system of government, and for students interested in
federalism in practice. Joseph F. Zimmerman traces the development
if the U.S. federal system from 1789 to the present day by
focussing in the shifting balance of power between the nation and
the states. It introduces the important theories of federalism and
explains how they can be used to understand the system as it was
originally drawn up and as it operates now. All the important
trends in national-state relations are examined, with particular
attention being given to the preemption by the federal legislature
and judiciary of the powers and authority of the states.
The U.S. federal system has changed radically since its
inception, and continues to increase in complexity. This lucid and
accessible account links the systeM's current practices with its
history and looks forward to the future of the most important
federal system in operation today.
