Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Forget right-wing businessmen: America's real plutocrats are left-liberal foundations and labor unions, argues this suspicious exposé. Deploying material from their site DiscoverTheNetworks.org, conservative pundits Horowitz and Laksin (coauthors of One Party Classroom) investigate a rogues' gallery of 'progressive' foundations — everything from the Ford Foundation to, astonishingly, the ChevronTexaco Foundation — along with the public sector Service Employees International Union and American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. This powerful agglomeration, masterminded by billionaire arch-liberal George Soros, vastly outspends conservative foundations, the authors contend, and dominates American politics: funding radicals at ACORN and the ACLU; promoting leftist policies on health care, immigration, and global warming; boosting minions — Barack Obama, most prominently — into high office to enact 'socialism by stealth.' The authors' turgid, acronym-strewn text takes on conspiracy overtones as they doggedly trace 'networks' of liberal patronage, but their one-sided account of political influence — they focus on nonprofit organizations while ignoring corporate political activity and conservative talk radio — is neither original nor alarming. The machinations they uncover — voter registration drives, position papers, liberals funding liberals — feel run-of-the-mill rather than sinister. The result is a panicky but unconvincing rehash of familiar conservative-populist dudgeon. Agent: Georges Borchardt, Georges Borchardt Inc. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
