Product Overview

For anyone who believes that "liberal isn't a dirty word but a term of honor," this book will be as revitalizing as oxygen. For in the pages of Reason," one of our most incisive public thinkers, and a former secretary of labor mounts a defense of classical liberalism that's also a guide for rolling back twenty years of radical conservative domination of our politics and political culture.
To do so, Robert B. Reich shows how liberals can:
.Shift the focus of the values debate from behavior in the bedroom to malfeasance in the boardroom
.Remind Americans that real prosperity depends on fairness
.Reclaim patriotism from those who equate it with pre-emptive war-making and the suppression of dissent
If a single book has the potential to restore our country's good name and common sense, it's this one.

From the Publisher
Annotation In a thoughtful, well-argued restatement of why, in his view, liberalism is good for America, Robert Reich, who served as Clinton's Secretary of the Treasury, explains how basic liberal assumptions are in tune with core values in America, including fairness, and plurality of viewpoints. He contrasts this with what he sees from the radical conservatives: mean-spiritedness, a refusal to listen to others, preferences for the wealthy, and less for the disadvantaged--and, worse, a bellicose foreign policy. Reich exhorts liberals to work harder on getting their message across, and to reclaim what has been lost to the well-organized, and well-funded, Right.
Editors Note In a passionate call to revitalize America's traditional two-party system, the author of The Future of Success offers a forceful argument that the tenets of liberalism must become part of the national political agenda in order to battle the radical conservatism that poses a danger for America and the world and sets out a program for liberals to regain political power.
