This is a first post here for me, but I browse here almost every day. I'm writing about a book, and a battle of reviews on Amazon that, IMO, demonstrates the core truth of the book in question. The book is Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America by Nancy MacLean. She is the William H. Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke University. I bought it last Saturday, and finished it on Monday morning. It's that good.
