    Kindle Eric Alterman õ The Cause ePUB ½ õ cause free, The Cause MOBII should start by saying this book is encyclopedic and helped me to understand the Truman and Roosevelt administrations and their relationship to liberalism The middle stuff is OK but predictable for anyone who has followed the movement King is good the Kennedys are good and Johnson is misguided OK I get it The last stuff is confused I like Alterman I like his prose His research is good I get it

    Kindle Eric Alterman õ The Cause ePUB ½ õ cause free, The Cause MOBII can think of no book that better recounts the achievements and failures of American liberalism than this book The authors take as their period of analysis the decades from Roosevelt's New Deal to Obama's Yes we can Filled with cultural markers as well as expected political changes the book develops a picture of American liberalism that has sometimes over reached sometimes promised than it could deliver but nevertheless has changed America into a just eual and compassionate nation The authors remain gloomy for the future With checks written by billionaires and multinational corporations to an increasingly irrational Republican Party and an increasingly pusillanimous Democratic Party the warning of Louis Brandeis We can have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few But we can't have both is ignored by politicians and the public alike Wi

    Kindle Eric Alterman õ The Cause ePUB ½ õ cause free, The Cause MOBIA good book on how liberals have ebbed and flowed with the societal changes from 1945 to the election of Obama The book does not confine itself to politicians alone but incorporates philosophers historians and writers who helped shape the changing definition of liberal I would recommend this book to anyone who already had a basic understanding of how the democratic party has changed as this book will help build on that understanding and allow for a in depth analysis of the factors that went into the change
