Reviews

"Stunning. . . . A rabble-rouser of a book." -The New York Times Book Review

"Fresh and persuasively argued. . . . Norton builds her case with the precision of a criminal prosecutor. . . . Her conclusion is forceful." -Boston Globe

"The freshest, and most detailed account . . . that we have had in a decade. . . . A landmark achievement. It may well herald a new golden age in American history." -Los Angeles Times
