In Self-Government, The American Theme, Morrisey aptly demonstrates how the regime of the founders was replaced by a much more statist regime during the Civil War. He offers salient interpretations of the writings of the key presidents of founding and civil war periods, and interpretations centered on the key word, ‘self-government.’ This book is an essential contribution to the understanding of early American history and politics.
