Description
The bestselling author demolishes myths about liberalism in a spirited polemic Thanks to the machinations of the right, there is no dirtier word in American politics today than liberalyet public opinion polls consistently show that the majority of Americans hold liberal views on everything from health care to foreign policy. In this feisty, accessible primer, bestselling author Eric Alterman sets out to restore liberalism to its rightful honored place in our political life as the politics of Americas everyday citizens. In Why Were Liberals Alterman examines liberalisms development and demonstrates how its partisans have come to represent not just the mainstream, but also the majority of Americans today. In a crisply argued though extensively documented counterattack on right-wing spin and misinformation, Alterman briskly disposes of such canards as Liberals Hate God and Liberals Are Soft on Terrorism, reclaiming liberalism from the false definitions foisted upon it by the right and repeated everywhere else. Why Were Liberals brings clarity and perspective to what has often been a one-sided debate for nothing less than the heart and soul of America. Why Were Liberals is the perfect election-year book for all of those ready to fight back against the conservative mud-slinging machine and claim their voice in the political debate.
