Summary of Why the Right Went Wrong: by E.J. Dionne | Includes Analysis by Instaread Summaries

Summary of Why the Right Went Wrong by E.J. Dionne | Includes Analysis

Preview:


Why the Right Went Wrong by E.J. Dionne Jr. is a history and analysis of the conservative movement from the early 1960s to 2015. Conservative polarization and radicalization did not happen in response to the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. Instead, the roots of the radical conservative Tea Party movement of 2010, and the violently nativist 2016 campaign of Donald Trump, stretch back to Barry Goldwater's unsuccessful 1964 Republican campaign.

Goldwater??s conservatism was based on two central themes. The...

Never Allow a Crisis to Go to Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism

Bart Depalma

Never Allow a Crisis to Go to Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism by Bart Depalma

Majorities of Americans believe Barack Obama is a socialist and that the President's policies are moving the United States towards socialism. But very few can explain why they share this belief.

Never Allow A Crisis To Go To Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism demonstrates why the American people are right.

Author and attorney Bart DePalma explains how socialism evolved after the collapse of the Soviet Union from classical state ownership of the means of production into a new asymmetric form - using progressive tools to achieve socialist ends, while misrepresenting the...

Daniel Hannan

Why America Must Not Follow Europe by Daniel HannanDaniel Hannan, a British Conservative Member of the European Parliament, calls on Americans to avoid Europe's future.

Securing Freedom

Eliza Manningham-Buller

Securing Freedom by Eliza Manningham-Buller

How do we balance our belief in human freedom with the need to defend ourselves against those who believe the use of terror can be justified? Can our handling of security risk and the laws we pass to deal with them distort our response to the threat of terrorism?

In this sobering and remarkably frank analysis based on her 2011 Reith Lectures, Eliza Manningham-Buller, ex-Director General of MI5, the British Security Service, talks about key events during her tenure - from the threat of the IRA to al-Qaeda. She states that torture works but must never be used, how intelligence is gathered and why...

The Battle for Saudi Arabia

As'Ad Abukhalil

The Battle for Saudi Arabia by As'Ad AbukhalilIn The Battle for Saudi Arabia: Royalty, Fundamentalism, and Global Power , Professor As`ad AbuKhalil confronts the contradictory nature of Saudi Arabia-questions that both the Saudi government, long shrouded in mystery, and the United States government, ever protective of its own interests, seem unwilling to answer.
In this unsparing probe into the history and power structure of the kingdom, Professor AbuKhalil, author of Bin Laden, Islam, and America's New "War on Terrorism", affords the reader unique insight into the intense friction that underlies the increasingly precarious balance between...

THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY: Lessons From the Past and Present To Guide us on our Path Forward

Steve Zolno

THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY: Lessons From the Past and Present To Guide us on our Path Forward by Steve ZolnoWhat is democracy and where did it come from? Is it a new development or was it always present in human society? And perhaps the most important question: what can we do to preserve and strengthen democracy among the forces that oppose it? In this book we explore trends throughout history that have brought democratic - and undemocratic - government to people wherever civilization exists. We discuss where democracy has been most, and least, successful and why. But our most important task is to clarify what each of us can do, as politicians or ordinary citizens, to bring the benefits of democracy...

Colombia and the United States

Mario A. Murillo

Colombia and the United States by Mario A. MurilloEvery year the United States spends millions of dollars to help the war-ravaged country of Colombia. But help it with what? In Colombia and the U.S. Mario Murillo explores the misdirected and devastating impact that U.S. military "aid" continues to have on the war torn-people of Colombia. Beginning with a brief history of Colombia, Murillo analyzes the complex forces driving Colombia's current decades-old guerilla war, U.S. involvement, media perceptions, and possible paths to peace. Whether it has been the U.S.-led war against "drug trafficking," the newly constituted "war against terrorism,"...

Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China

Authors Various

Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China by Authors VariousChina's revolutionary attempt to transition to socialism was an economic disaster. Since adopting elements of an open market policy in the 1970s, China has doubled its GDP every decade, and has lifted 400 million people out of absolute poverty. But as renowned social historian Arif Dirlik keenly observed that in China, "Post-socialism is of necessity also post-capitalist." As the wealth of the country continues to accumulate, the Chinese Communist Party is increasingly concerned about updating the tenets of Karl Marx's ideology to create a uniquely Chinese-styled Harmonious Socialist Society....

Iran: the Looming Crisis: Can the West live with Iran's nuclear threat?

Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi

Iran: the Looming Crisis: Can the West live with Iran's nuclear threat? by Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi

In August 2002 the National Council of the Resistance in Iran (NCRI) revealed in Washington to a stunned world how advanced Iran's nuclear programme was. And in September 2009 US President Barack Obama exposed yet another clandestine nuclear site there, bringing the possibility of a nuclear arsenal ever closer. For seven fruitless years the international community has been too divided to counter this threat. Russia and China view Iran as a tool to counter US influence. US efforts to engage Iran have yielded no results. Sunni Arab governments fear Iran, but are powerless to keep it in check....

Taming the Gods: Religion and Democracy on Three Continents

Ian Buruma

Taming the Gods: Religion and Democracy on Three Continents by Ian BurumaFor eight years the president of the United States was a born-again Christian, backed by well-organized evangelicals who often seemed intent on erasing the church-state divide. In Europe, the increasing number of radicalized Muslims is creating widespread fear that Islam is undermining Western-style liberal democracy. And even in polytheistic Asia, the development of democracy has been hindered in some countries, particularly China, by a long history in which religion was tightly linked to the state. Ian Buruma is the first writer to provide a sharp-eyed look at the tensions between religion...
