Theodore J. Lowi (July 9, 1931 – February 17, 2017) was one of the most influential political scientists of the 20th century. Lowi authored numerous books included the hallmark “The End of Liberalism: The Second Republic of the United States”, along with “The Politics of Disorder”, “American Government: Incomplete Conquest”, and “Hyperpolitics: An Interactive Dictionary of Political Science”. He also edited “The Pursuit of Justice”, Robert F. Kennedy’s book about his tenure as attorney general.
Thomas Dumm is the author of six books that cover a range of topics in political theory and political culture as well as many articles and other essays. Among his books are Loneliness as a Way of Life (Harvard, 2008) and My Father’s House: On Will Barnet’s Paintings (Duke, 2014). He served as the founding co-editor of the international journal of contemporary political thought Theory&Event, as well as a non-fiction editor for the Massachusetts Review. His new book, a meditation on the (im)possibility of being at home in the twenty-first century, is forthcoming with Harvard University Press.
