Pressestimmen"Hacker and Pierson shrewdly assess the new structures of political power in our country and the success of conservative Republicans in mobilizing resources and framing political choices. This book is innovative, it's important, and it will open many eyes." E.J. Dionne, Jr., author of Stand Up, Fight Back and Why Americans Hate Politics"
