America emerged from Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal with strong democratic values and broadly shared prosperity. But for the past thirty years American politics has been dominated by a conservative movement determined to undermine the New Deal’s achievements.

Now, the tide may be turning—and in The Conscience of a Liberal Paul Krugman, the world’s most widely-read economist and one of its most influential political commentators, charts the way to reform.

Krugman ranges over a century of history and shows that neither the American middle-class nor the baby boomers grew up in the increasingly oligarchic nation we have become over the past generation evolved naturally: both were created, to a large extent, by government policies guided by organized political movements.

The Conscience of a Liberal promises to reshape public debate about American social policy and become a touchstone work for an entire generation.

    " good overview of the progressive movement "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joe | 1/31/2014

    " Though the title implies a concise articulation of the liberal philosophy, (like Goldwater's Conscience of a Conservative), Krugman's book would better be described as a broad survey of America's economic and political history over the past 150 years. Careful students of economics and politics will see much that is familiar, but I found many aspects of the book enlightening and even shocking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by David | 1/30/2014

    " Very coherent and readable, but of course, since it was first published in 2007, it is a little dated in some of the discussion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dave | 1/26/2014

    " A competent and readable summary of liberal thoughts and action. Krugman has a solid foundation in history, and a compelling argument for values in economic decisions. "
