Abstract:

At some point between 1915 and 1920 America became an urban nation, and promptly began the process of becoming a suburban one. Spiro Agnew's life has paralleled the development of America in the past fifty-odd years. His social, professional, and political development all took place in a homogeneous suburb and political subdivision. Spiro Agnew's famous instinctive early response to urban disorders was the same as that of his suburban constituency, and that instinct, if not in fact the response itself, is what assured him of a leading role in national political affairs. Spiro Agnew is the first suburban politician to rise so high. This biography show how it happened and suggests what it may mean for the nation in the future.
