From the author of the landmark bestseller What's the Matter with America?, here is a jaw-dropping investigation into decades of deliberate and lucrative right-wing misrule in America.

About the Author

Reviews

Frank paints a complex and conspiracy-ridden picture that illuminates the sinister and controversial practices of the Republican party in the 20th and 21st centuries. While Frank's assessments and interpretations of key events, players and party doctrines is accurate and justifiable, his overwhelming blame of the Republican Party as the source of everything that's wrong with this county and as the emblem of self-destructing government denies the Democrats and the citizenry their roles in a decaying democracy. Wyman's matter-of-fact delivery hints at the obviousness of Frank's words, but provides enough enthusiasm to make listeners believe he, too, is invested in Frank's message. His emphasis and vigor keep the text enjoyable, long after the rant of Republican despotism has become excessive. A Metropolitan Books hardcover (Reviews, May 26). (Aug.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

"A primer on American conservatism, revealing the corruption and self-interest at the heart of the movement that has been the ascendant force in US politics for three decades" Observer "Thomas Frank, not Michael Moore, is the most incisive writer on contemporary America. His writing is so dazzling and witty and scornful it can stand comparison with the works of Twain or Mencken" Observer "Thomas Frank is the most witty, talented, humane and intelligent writer in America today" -- Nick Cohen "Frank [writes] vividly and with great insight" London Review of Books
