This review is from: Mad As Hell: How the Tea Party Movement Is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two-Party System (Hardcover)
The authors did a first class job of analyzing a new, dynamic force on the America political scene--the Tea Party movement. They did a masterful job of laying out the historical background of American populism and the populist movements that preceded the Tea Party movement. Moving from history into real time, the authors did an excellent job of analyzing the Tea Parties. Who is active in the movement? What is their motivation? Who are their heroes? Who do they dislike?
The book may be as prescient as "The Emerging Republican Majority" was in its time.
Whether one agrees or disagrees with their conclusions, the data presented in the book is a real eye opener for students of politics. The book is very readable. The tables and graphs are placed conveniently so that readers do not have to keep flipping pages. The book is excellent and I thoroughly recommend it.
