The fact that Schattschneider holds his generalizations to the particular policy in question should be noted here as a point central to my later arguments. While both make the same kinds of errors, each leads to different kinds of propositions. In some hands they are, of course, indistinguishable and, for good reason, Polsby in Community Power and Political Theory treats the two as one.
Thirteen Colonies Eastern North America in The border between the red and pink areas represents the "Proclamation line", while the orange area represents the Spanish claim.
