Oh, No, Not Arthur Schlesinger Jr. Again?

March 1978
National Review;3/17/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 11, p328
The article presents American historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr.'s views on the political developments in the U.S. His first book "The Age of Jackson" was biased towards liberals and socialists. According to Schlesinger, liberalism has outlived conservatism. Over the years conservatism has not passed the test of time, hence it is viewed that the U.S. must resort to affirmative government. In Schlesinger's view, U.S. President Jimmy Carter's proposed budget for the year 1979 would contribute to the enormous deficits which have prevailed over the past few years.
