“The New Age of Political Reform”: Looking Back, 15 Georgia Law Review 1 (1980)
To summarize, the impact of the "new" age of political reform
has been wider and deeper than that of the Progressive Era and
has led to "defeated expectations and unwanted consequences"
that would have astonished even so skeptical an observer as Alex
Bickel. It has impacted upon our political parties with a destructiveness
that even now is difficult to comprehend.
