Editorial Reviews

Review

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

From the Author

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.

Format: Paperback
Don't let the title fool you. Wolves in Sheep's Clothing is not a neo-conservative diatribe against bleeding-heart liberals who don't toe the party line with the current administration in the White House. Rather, Wolves in Sheep's Clothing is about the anti-establishment leaders who protested the Vietnam War, but are now willing to go to war to advance the cause of free-market capitalism. Without providing cookie-cutter solutions to the world's problems, Marshall probes the deeper questions regarding liberal interventionism and laissez-faire capitalism that are currently lost in the facade of today's culture war, which, according to Marshall, is simply a masquerade to keep the public from discovering that both parties are part of the same corporate industrial establishent. Not only does Marshall provoke the reader to ponder the place of authentic liberalism in contemporary American politics, he also challenges the reader to re-examine the messianic complex that many Americans have regarding America's role in spreading freedom and democracy to the world. This is a must-read for those who wonder why the vast majority of the non-Western world resist America's version of liberal democracy.

Aaron D. Taylor, author of Alone with A Jihadist: A Biblical Response To Holy War

Format: Paperback
This is the story of the death of American Liberalism, told by some of the very people who helped kill it. Far from the typical liberal claptrap or conservative diatribe, Marshall's fiercely independant examination of the left's rightward drift is a unique, character driven narrative that keeps you turning pages.

I feared that by exposing the Democrats as faux liberals, Stephen Marshall would bring me into even a deeper state of despair. As I read, I found myself in just the opposite state -- happily taking in every page with new hope that there exists here in America this level of awareness and acuity and most importantly, passion. If this man understands society on this level, there is the possibility of nurturing and spreading this wisdom. I find I have someone to follow. If you need something to believe in, read this book.

Format: Paperback
Wolves is a must read. So many of the political books that come my way are either redundant or homework. Marshall doesn't shove his opinion down your throat. He takes you along a real intellectual journey of discovery. It will get your neurons firing on multiple levels as you are challenged to figure out where you stand on the most important issues of the day. The section with Hitchens (and his brother) is brilliant, and most illuminating piece on the controversial writer ever written.

Format: Paperback
Marshall's look at the liberal elite and why they have turned against their once radical ways is incredibly informative, well researched, insightful, and best of all, a fun read!

Great for political animals and novices alike, Marshall tackles a unique subject matter with flair and style.

I highly recommend!
