Of all the reviews that came for Mary P. Follett's book The New State (1918), the most appreciative were from philosophers. Among them were Hartly Burr Alexander, the 1919 president of the American Philosophical Association, Bernard Bosanquet, England's leading proponent of Absolute Idealism, James H. Tufts, a professor at the University of Chicago, and Harry A. Overstreet, the pluralist proponent of vocational schemes of political representation. Charles A. Ellwood, a University of Missouri professor, called The New State a notable contribution to social and political theory. Harold J. Laski's critique seemed more a restatement of his attack on sovereignty than a review, while Thomas P. Bailey, a professor of ethology at the University of the South, accused Follett of being a communist sympathizer. Follett wrote a paper for Philosophical Review not only to clear up misunderstandings regarding her book but also to reiterate the importance of new modes of association and the integrative group process, rather than neighborhood groups or occupational groups per se, in creating democracy.
