'This is a terrific book that I can imagine readers turning back to again and again. It is a major contribution to the literature of political science. One of Ringen's greatest accomplishments here is that he reminds readers why this field was interesting in the first place.' --Alan Wolfe, Boston College
'Nation of Devils crackles with dry epigrams. It reminds readers of how the supply-side of politics law and government is often neglected for the noisy demand-side that is the purview of voters and lobbyists.' --The Economist
