While most Americans remain politically moderate, American politics has careened to the right over the last two decades. Why? What can be done? This book helps make sense of recent political changes and explains how popular will is deliberately being subverted. The authors propose important reforms to strengthen our democracy and return American politics to the center. "The most illuminating book on contemporary American politics to be published in over a decade. Every political journalist in America needs to read and heed this brilliant book."--Eric Alterman, author of "When Presidents Lie" and "What Liberal Media?" "Closely argued and very readable. . . . This book should become required reading for anyone interested in the triumph of the neocons or worried about where they are leading America."--"Publishers Weekly" "Hacker and Pierson shrewdly assess the new structures of political power in our country and the success of conservative Republicans in mobilizing resources and framing political choices. This book is innovative, it's important, and it will open many eyes. It is the book Karl Rove would wish he had written-if he were on the other side."--E. J. Dionne, Jr., author of "Stand Up, Fight Back "and "Why Americans Hate Politics"
