Praise for Realigners: Partisan Hacks, Political Visionaries, and the Struggle to Rule American Democracy

"[Realigners] is fair in its criticisms, vividly written, impressively researched, and―best of all―delightfully out of step with present-day liberal orthodoxy.... Highly readable." Wall Street Journal

"Like Hofstadter, Shenk is attuned to the divide between the rhetoric of [his subjects] and the reality of what they accomplished.... [Realigners] is the book of a left that doesn't want just to be morally right or to dissent from the peanut gallery, but that has a vision of winning and all that might come after." The Nation

"Compelling.... Shenk deftly maps out the genealogy of discord and those charismatic figures it birthed.... He snaps each piece of his narrative together like a jigsaw, highlighting emblematic characters." Oprah Daily

"Shenk offers a valuable framework for analyzing American politics.... An astute and stylish history that speaks to present-day concerns over partisan polarization." Publishers Weekly
