Listen, Liberal

Listen, Liberal book cover In his 2004 book What's the Matter with Kansas Thomas Frank explained how the Republican Party successfully cons the working class into voting against its own interest. In Listen, Liberal: What Ever Happened to the Party of the People, he explains why the Democratic Party is where social movements go to die. One of the country's more flint-tongued political historians, Frank contextualizes the current presidential election season by exposing the ironies and agonies in the United States' body politic. He also analyzes the post 2016 election reckoning.
