This book examines the past thirty years of American politics, a time of dramatic change in government, as well as the economic, political, social, and cultural forces that pushed a significant group of Democrats away from their party and made Republican candidates and ideas attractive to so many. While its focus is on national events, The book details the emergence of GOP control and the tensions among the distinct factions that compose, and in some ways compromise, the modern Republican party.
