Summary note
"After the 2012 election, the GOP was in the wilderness. Lost and in disarray. And doggedly determined to do whatever it took to get back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. McKay Coppins has had unparalleled access to Republican presidential candidates, power brokers, lawmakers, and Tea Party leaders. Based on more than 300 interviews, The Wilderness is the book that [examines] the party like never before: the deep passions, larger-than-life personalities, and dagger-sharp power plays behind the scenes"--Dust jacket flap.
