Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Provides detailed information and an analysis of interstate relations, and advances recommendations to improve the economic and political union.

Cooperative interstate relations are essential for the maintenance of the economic union and the political union established by a confederacy or a federacy. This suggests that interstate relations would be featured prominently in the literature of the U.S. federal system, yet relatively few scholars have studied horizontal state relations. This volume provides detailed information and an analysis of interstate relations, and advances recommendations to improve the economic and political union. The ultimate goal is to stimulate scholarly research on important yet neglected interstate issues.

“With Horizontal Federalism, Zimmerman has produced a solid, comprehensive volume on interstate relations. Thanks to him, what was a neglected dimension in 1996 has received some much needed illumination.” — Publius

“…a brilliant book.” — Diritti Comparati

“…no other contemporary scholar of American federalism is able to draw on such a wide range of cases and examples covering the full sweep of American political development. Moreover, [Zimmerman] demonstrates that legal and political questions concerning interstate relations are at the heart of a number of recent political developments and controversies.” — H-Net Reviews (H-Law)

“Zimmerman’s comprehensive work on horizontal federalism makes a valuable contribution to scholars’ understanding of how states interact with one another … a welcome, necessary contribution to the field.” — CHOICE

Joseph F. Zimmerman is Professor of Political Science at the University at Albany, State University of New York. His many books include Regulating the Business of Insurance in a Federal System; Congress: Facilitator of State Action; and The Government and Politics of New York State: Second Edition, all published by SUNY Press.
