Description

If any book can change a nation's thinking, it has to be this brilliant and perceptive work by one of the most tough-minded bearers of the torch of liberalism. For in The Resurgent Liberal Robert B. Reich, a professor at Harvard, Secretary of Labor, and the author of the best-selling The Work of Nations, not only champions a cause but looks fairly and unblinkingly at the conservative opposition. He carefully examines the four "parables" conservatives have exploited to monopolize American politics -- and what liberals must do to take it back.
