This paper examines a case study of the various post-World War II attempts to alter the balance between federal and state power in the American federal system by reducing national activities and separating federal and state functions. This paper discusses the historical and other factors, which account for the way the American federal system and inter-governmental relations function, and suggests the way they might evolve to meet contemporary needs. The author concludes that no single model of federalism and intergovernmental relations should be permitted to prevail.

From the Paper:

"In some areas of domestic policy, federal initiatives have been absolutely vital. For example, while various compromises on the issue of slavery may have helped delay the Civil War, it took vigorous action by the federal government at first in the 1860s and 1870s and later in response to the Civil Rights Revolution of the 1960s to protect the civil rights of blacks, and other minorities. In the economic sphere, many of the economic and social reforms which brought the excesses of Big Business under control in the late 19th and early 20th century originated in the states."
