Robert H. Salisbury, professor emeritus of political science, was the first Sidney W. Souers Professor of American Government at Washington University.
“Robert Salisbury's Interests and Institutions offers the reader a perspective on an important intellectual trend in political science: . . . often called the 'New Institutionalism,' [it] focuses on ways in which the internal organization of political institutions affects policy decisions and other political outcomes.”—Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science

“This book is a fine example of an empirical political science that works to reveal American politics from the local community to the national level.”—Key Reporter

“This volume will aid the newcomer to Salisbury's excellent work, in that most of his theoretical essays are here; it will also provide, in a one-volume format, the seasoned researcher with a schematic of the development of his thought as it evolved.”—American Political Science Society Newsletter
