Editorial Reviews

Review

“Lofgren puts a name and a shape to a problem that has often been only nebulously defined…. The logic and sophistication of his argument is hard to resist.”
Salon
 
“The book’s greatest value is Lofgren’s description of Washington DC”
Financial Times

"I could not put this book down. . . . This should be required reading not just for every student but for every American and probably every citizen of the world." --Frank Murano 

"Lofgren leaves no president or party unscathed. . . Although The Deep State might sound like an expose on, say, the government's assasination of JFK, or a cover-up of UFOs, the real story is much more insidious, realistic and troubling."
Pittsburg Post-Gazette

"With echoes of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Farewell Address warning in 1961 about the military-industrial complex, Lofgren offers a compelling vision of what happens when a democracy becomes a plutocracy, when political dysfunction reigns supreme over democratic deliberation, and when the war on terrorism leads to the militarization of our foreign policy. . . A must-read for anyone interested in the health and sanity of our body politic."
Library Journal

Praise for The Party Is Over:

"A fast-moving, hard-hitting, dryly witty account of the radicalization of the Republican Party, the failures of Democratic rivals and the appalling consequences for the country at large. The Party is Over is forceful, convincing and seductive."
--The Washington Post 

"Lofgren's often comedic take on the grim political reality in Washington is no joke. . . . He wields not only a rare integrity in this town, but credibility, too."
--The American Conservative

"Lofgren describes the Republic Party as an 'apocalyptic cult' given to lying and delusional thinking. . . . He writes about how the party took advantage of a profoundly ignorant electorate, an easily conned and distracted media, and a cowed Democratic Party to press the ideological struggle in spite of the deep unpopularity of many of its positions. If all of this had come from a Nation columnist, it would have been unremarkable. Instead, it came from a mild, inconspicuous Hill staffer who hadn't written a political word in thirty years in Washington [and] had the feel of a long-repressed confession and the authority of an insider's testimony, like the anti-war views of a decorated infantry officer."
--George Packer, The New Yorker

 
"A pen in Lofgren's deft hands, combined with his deep understanding of political history and acid sense of humor, becomes a sharp, deeply penetrating harpoon aimed at the heart of his subject. In addition to harpooning the bloated degenerate Republican whale, Mike harpoons the Democrats by demonstrating subtly, yet persuasively, how their growing 'uselessness' arose out of an enervating sense of entitlement to power."
--Counterpunch
