Reich sees the radical conservatism that has taken over the public agenda—the desire to fight unilateral “preemptive” wars, to stifle dissent and restrict civil liberties, to shower the rich with tax breaks and cut social services—as dangerous for both America and the world. He argues convincingly that the tenets of the liberal tradition must be a part of our national governance. He makes clear that radical conservatives have ascended in part because of an efficient infrastructure and a political organization driven by big money, and shock troops of mediagenic personalities. He explains how liberals can begin to re-ascend the political ladder by reclaiming the courage of their convictions, and finding powerfully effective ways to minimize the abuse of wealth and power in our political system.

    " Robert Reich is the most important voice for liberals. He doesn't scream, he doesn't lie, he doesn't pander. He's a thinker and a doer. He's rational, he listens, and he compromises. I wish Clinton had listened to Reich more often than he did. "

    " This is the best explanation of my views on the world that I've ever read. Reich hits the nail on the head again and again. This is a must-read for anyone who loves this country and wants to bring civility and reason back to the forefront of the American discussion. "

    " Reread this. Reich is good. Read his new one, Aftershock, and didn't like it as much. But this one is a great elucidation of liberal ideals and their reasonableness, as dated as it now seems in some respects. "
