5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-READ FOR ANY STUDENT OF U.S. POLITICS, January 21, 2012
This review is from: The Age of Austerity: How Scarcity Will Remake American Politics (Hardcover)
Thomas B. Edsall has been one of the shining lights of U.S. political journalism for some four decades. This is the most recent of his superbly documented and argued books that have illuminated the political landscape since his classic "The New Politics Of Inequality". Edsall examines the tectonic shifts in political alignments and attitudes that are underway in the wake of the "Great Recession", the explosion of fiscal deficits and the national debt, the specter of financial insolvency, and epochal changes in population demographics, among other factors. It is hard to imagine a book that could serve as a better guide to the stark and divisive ideological and policy alternatives on offer by the two major political parties in the election contests of 2012. Highest recommendation.
