Servants of Wealth: The Right's Assault on Economic Justice (Polemics)

by

Servants of Wealth: The Right's Assault on Economic Justice (Polemics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this bold new book, political scientist John Ehrenberg critically analyzes the rise of an ideologically coherent Right. He dissects their themes of military weakness, moral decay, racial anxiety, and hostility to social welfare to reveal their central organizing objective of protecting wealth and assaulting equality.

Book News Annotation:

Whatever the differences among the American right, according to Ehrenberg (political science, Long Island U.), the movement is united by their support of aggressive state power to advance the interests of the rich. Their remarkable success in achieving this plutocratic goal over the past few decades came about through the fashioning of a broad ideological assault on liberalism that rested on militarism, strengthening authority, racial fear, attacks on the welfare state, and moral defense of inequality. The development of each of these pillars of the new right's ideological campaign is described in individual chapters. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
