The Other Rights Revolution

Conservative Lawyers and the Remaking of American Government

Jefferson Decker

  • Demonstrates the importance of the American West (distincy from the larger "Sunbelt") to the development and policy choices of the modern U.S. conservatism
  • Focuses less on the emergence of a conservative electoral coalition and more on what conservatives did once elected—how they translated electoral victories into policy change (and what proposed changes failed to occur)
  • Utilizes dozens of archival sources not previously used by historians
