  1. Natalia

    Beautifully written analysis of all that s not working in American democracy Published in 2008 but just as relevant today as four years ago, with an excellent foreword that is pretty much an indictment of Obama s administration A must read for anyone who cares about this country.

  2. C. Scott

    Very good, very fast read It s hard not to get depressed when you realize how much money and power cripple change in this country.
