Description

In Local Government in Early America, Brian P. Janiskee examines the origins of the "town hall meeting" and other iconic political institutions, whose origins lie in our colonial heritage. This work offers an overview of the structure of local politics in the colonial era, a detailed examination of the thoughts of key founders-such as John Adams and Thomas Jefferson-on local politics, and some thoughts on the continued role of local institutions as vital elements of the American political system.
