The release of this book in 1987 prompted a flurry of excellent and complimentary reviews furthering Elazar’s already considerable reputation as the leading contemporary scholar of federalism.

Daniel J. Elazar is director, Center for the Study of Federalism, Temple University.

“No contemporary scholar has observed as many federations at first hand or written so prolifically about federalism as Daniel Elazar….Exploring Federalism is the fruit of Elazar’s mature experience and reflection and is a dauntingly comprehensive and erudite book.”
—American Political Science Review

“An excellent book…. Elazar diligently explores the roots of federalism, traces its historical development through three stages and then describes how it has and can be employed to promote workable and effective government systems in nations with people of diverse tradition.”
—The Journal of Politics

"Elazar extends his sights beyond American federalism, about which he is widely achnowledged to be the leading expert, to a masterful discussion of federal government in general…. A remarkable tour de force of scholarship from beginning to end, characterized by Elazar’s lucid writing.”
