Summary note
Examines the liberal, Democratic party of the mainstream political debate, revealing the limits to the principles guiding US government. Frank examines those limits, and shows how electoral politics in the US forces voters to make narrow, apathetic choices. When this occurs, Frank argues, the fight for democracy has been lost. But we are not without hope! Things can and do change. We just need to know whom and what we are up against--a strong critique of both Howard Dean and John Kerry--Publisher.
