Zuesse's Documentation Verifies His Conclusions.
on May 25, 2015
A meticulous, well documented work. The title "They're Not Even Close" is a highly partisan statement, but the evidence clearly supports the title. The documentation is complex, multi-layered and dense. This is a compliment, not a criticism. Zuesse provides copious footnotes for anyone who wishes to challenge his source material. His chapter titles are provocative at first glance, but they are an accurate analysis of the data. If a Republican researcher can provide contradicting facts or an analysis of Zuesse's material that comes to well-reasoned and different conclusions, I would welcome the effort.
