Pluralism at Yale: The Culture of Political Science in America explores the relationship between personal experience and academic theories of American politics. Through a detailed examination of the Yale University Department of Political Science between 1955 and 1970, including interviews with many of the political scientists involved, this book traces the way qpluralism, q a predominately optimistic theory of American democracy which the Yale department helped to develop in those years, helped to support the American political regime.
