With research grounded at the Carter Library, contributors in 13 original essays reassess the Carter presidency and his more successful postpresidency (per Rutgers historian Chambers) from the vantage point of 20 years. A pivotal dilemma framing his 1976- 80 term was to steer a transitional course between New Deal-based expectations of the federal government and disenchantment with big government spending. Issues span civil rights, energy, the environment, feminism, foreign policy, trade, and welfare reform. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
