Waldman's book is terrific-good sense mustered with evidence, well argued, and sharply written to boot. I agree fervently with almost everything he writes. This is the indispensable book for the 2006 elections. --Todd Gitlin, author of The Sixties and The Twilight of Common Dreams A well-sourced, partisan blueprint for undoing Republican control of the nation. --Publishers Weekly Here's the ticket for Democrats to get back in power: read this book, understand what it means to be a true American progressive, expose conservatives as the mean elitists they are, get tough, and fight back. Nobody paints the strengths of progressives and the weaknesses of conservatives like Paul Waldman. --Bill Press, author How the Republicans Stole Christmas With clarity and passion, Paul Waldman demonstrates persuasively that the forces of the right have not 'taken over the country, ' as the media often lazily put it. They've only taken over politics. That can be reversed, and Waldman shows exactly how. --Michael Tomasky, Editor, the American Prospect
