Daley’s book provides a blow-by-blow account of how this happened. He draws on investigative reports, interviews and court documents to give readers an eye-opening tour of a process that many Americans never see….What Daley makes clear is that ruthless partisan gerrymandering is not good for democracy and makes it that much more difficult to wrestle control of the House away from the GOP. Democrats should read this book. — Julian E. Zelizer (Washington Post)
Extraordinarily timely and undeniably important. — Alex Wagner (New York Times Book Review)
Compelling. — Elizabeth Kolbert (The New Yorker)
The way dark money was translated into congressional majorities is one of the great, sinister stories of our time. But in David Daley the shadow figures have finally met their match. — Thomas Frank, author of What’s the Matter with Kansas
