New Democracy: The Creation of the Modern American State
Join the Penn Program on Regulation and the Center for Technology, Innovation & Competition for a talk by William Novak, the Charles F. and Edith J. Clyne Professor of Law at the University of Michigan, about his important new book, New Democracy: The Creation of the Modern American State.

Described as “an essential read for anyone who cares about the past and future of American democracy,” New Democracy traces how American governance was transformed in the decades after the Civil War, giving rise even before the New Deal to an active, interventionist federal government that used legislation, regulation, and public administration to advance economic and social welfare.

Following Prof. Novak’s remarks, Karen M. Tani, the Seaman Family University Professor at Penn, and Christopher S. Yoo, the John H. Chestnut Professor of Law, Communication, and Computer & Information Science at Penn and Founding Director of the Center for Technology, Innovation & Competition, will offer comments.

Cary Coglianese, the Edward B. Shils Professor of Law, Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Penn Program on Regulation, will moderate.
