Marshall cuts into the bleeding heart of liberalism to expose the apostates and the apostles. A guidebook to the perplexed of Gen X and Y - who to trust, who to trash. -- Greg Palast, author of Armed Madhouse and The Best Democracy Money Can Buy
Marshall takes on some of the biggest names in liberal thought and leaves them bleeding from their own contradictions and posturing. -- Danny Schechter, MediaChannel.org
Marshall's mélange of storytelling, travelogue, and fresh analysis is riveting. Wolves stirs the brain and the heart, making you impatient for all your friends to get reading so you have someone to talk to. A fantastic read. -- Frances Moore Lappé, author of Democracy's Edge: Choosing to Save Our Country by Bringing Democracy to Life
Marshall's skillful narration and willingness to go seemingly anywhere for an interview make Wolves in Sheep's Clothing eminently readable. -- Austin American-Statesman
I have chosen to write Wolves much in the style in which I make my documentaries. While it is nonfiction, the story unfolds as a linear narrative with a primary focus on characters and the scenes within which I encountered them. There are times when the reader is simply placed within the moment of a conversation. In many cases I leave it to their judgment to interpret the deeper connection between the subject's ideas and the book's thesis. At other times, I have injected myself more decisively, delving into the back stories that made this material so compelling for me. I am a firm believer in the slow reveal, that the journey is the destination. And so, while I have surrendered to my editor's wish that I clearly map out the key arguments and goal of this book in its first chapter, I have generally avoided the kind of academic handholding that is found throughout most books of this nature. I want it to be as much as an adventure into the legacy of America's failed liberal project for the reader as it was for me.See all Editorial Reviews

I just finished this book and felt the need to review it (something I almost never do) because I not only did I find it profoundly illuminating but also really, really, really... Read morePublished on March 19, 2008 by Borrego Boy
Very interesting, well written, and disturbing.
Read it, then talk about the elections.
