Summary
Explores federalism as a Constitutional compromise, especially in terms of present-day conflicts between people who believe that power should reside primarily in the national government and those who want government authority retained within the states. Case studies include the conflict between Idaho and the federal government when wolves were re-introduced to public lands; the use of federal incentives to influence blood-alcohol standards for drunk drivers in South Carolina, and the devolution of welfare programs in the United States.
