Book Description

June 24 2005
A majority of Americans tell pollsters they want more government intervention to reduce the gap between high- and lower-income citizens, and less than one-third consider high taxes to be a problem. Yet conservative Republicanism currently controls the political discourse. Why?

Rick Perlstein probes this central paradox of today's political scene in his penetrating pamphlet. Perlstein explains how the Democrats' obsessive short-term focus on winning "swing voters," instead of cultivating loyal party-liners, has relegated Democrats to political stagnation. Perlstein offers a vigorous critique and far-reaching vision that is a thirty-year plan for Democratic victory.

5.0 out of 5 stars an insightful round-table discussion Sept. 19 2005
By J. Boyan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The pamphlet consists of Perlstein's provocative, even gripping, essay on how to rebuild the Democratic Party's brand image (not to mention the nation) with a long-term populist program; short responses from various luminaries along the left-of-center spectrum; and a closing summary by the author. The format works and the net effect is inspiring. Buy this book, read it in an hour, and pass it on.
