Nelson Rockefeller here presents a strong case for the usefulness, indeed the necessity, of federalism in the modern world. Arguing that the federal idea, pluralistic in intention and balanced in practice, fosters diversity within unity and encourages creativity, Rockefeller begins by giving examples of the way federalism functions in American society today. Then, pointing out that federalism has aroused fear and hostility since the early Constitutional debates, he describes its future promise for social progress, economic growth, and political stability. Finally, he suggests that federalism be applied boldly to the development of the nations of the free world.
