One Party Country: The Republican Plan for Dominance in the 21st Century Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Los Angeles Times bestseller

""Intelligent....Their book represents a burgeoning literary genre--studies of Roveology, which is the art of using what Republicans embrace, marketing information and what they theoretically are wary of, federal power, to elect more Republicans.""

--George Will, Newsweek

""Persuasive....Hamburger and Wallsten discuss in great detail the misuse of executive branch power for raw political purposes.""

--Mark Schmitt, Washington Monthly

The single greatest priority for the Bush administration has been the consolidation of executive power. That power has been wielded like never before for partisan gain: to win current and future elections for Republicans across America. The Democrats had everything going for them in the 2006 election, but all the obstacles Republicans have been constructing paid off by denying them an even bigger win. Democrats are confident going into 2008, but the Republican advantages endure. Through a rigorous examination of the GOP machine, this book reveals how a true Democratic resurgence faces steep barriers--barriers erected by conservatives who have worked to build their dominant position since the days of Barry Goldwater.

""Incisive journalistic digging...One Party Country does a good job of spelling out the GOP electoral strategy objectively and in detail.""

--The Christian Science Monitor
