Progressives everywhere wake up and look alive E J Dionne brings good news Dionne analyzes the recent political chaos and concludes that it s due to Americans moving towards a New Progressive Era not towards a New Right, One of our most visible trenchant and witty political commentators the author of the bestselling i Why Americans Hate Politics i offers a tough critique of President George W Bush and the Democratic opposition on the eve of a landmark presidential election and points to a way out of cynicism and defeatism br With passion clarity and humor E J Dionne describes today s political atmosphere as the bitterest he can remember Never have Democrats been as frustrated by their inability to move the debate The party of Roosevelt Kennedy and Clinton Dionne says is lost in pointless feuds outdated strategies and old arguments Democrats have lost track of what they stand for so they don t know what they re fighting for and besides they ve forgotten how to fight back br In describing how Democrats moderates and liberals have failed to match Republicans and conservatives in commitment resourcefulness and clarity Dionne invents what is likely to become a popular parlor game among the politically committed In The Wrong Stuff he lists ten futile arguments big versus small government for example that Democrats keep having with themselves The Right Stuff focuses on ten arguments they should start making about taxes business and the role of government br Dionne zeroes in on how a floundering Bush administration used September to politicize national security issues for partisan advantage Enraged but intimidated by ruthless opponents the Democratic party failed to find its voice on security issues and was soundly beaten in br Drawing on some lessons from the primary campaigns Dionne argues that anger and frustration have in fact awakened progressives to the need for innovation in organizing in approaching an increasingly conservative media and in formulating politically useful and plainly stated ideas Learning from the conservative movement s successes liberals have begun the work of reconstruction br The politics of revenge Dionne argues persuasively can give way to something better a progressive patriotism built on hope and optimism about America s role in the world and its capacity to renew social justice at home, b In this new edition of his national bestseller E J Dionne brings up to date his influential proposals for a politics that can and must find a balance between rights and obligations between responsibility and compassion b br From the New Updated Introduction br At the heart of i Why Americans Hate Politics i is the view that ideas shape politics far more than most accounts of public life usually allow I believe ideas matter not only to elites and intellectuals but also to rank and file voters Indeed I often think that the rank and file see the importance of ideas more clearly than the elites who often find themselves surprised by the rise of the movements that arise from the bottom up and shape our politics, br The religious and political winds are changing Tens of millions of religious Americans are reclaiming faith from those who would abuse it for narrow partisan and ideological purposes And more and more secular Americans are discovering common ground with believers on the great issues of social justice peace and the environment In Souled Out award winning journalist and commentator E J Dionne explains why the era of the Religious Right and the crude exploitation of faith for political advantage is over br Based on years of research and writing Souled Out shows that the end of the Religious Right doesn t signal the decline of evangelical Christianity but rather its disentanglement from a political machine that sold it out to a narrow electoral agenda of such causes as opposition to gay marriage and abortion With insightful portraits of leading contemporary religious figures from Rick Warren and Richard Cizik to John Paul II and Benedict XVI Dionne shows that our great religions have always preached a broad message of hope for more just human arrangements and refused to be mere props for the powers that be Dionne also argues that the new atheist writers should be seen as a gift to believers a demand that they live up to their proclaimed values and embrace scientific and philosophical inquiry in a spirit of intellectual solidarity br Written in the tradition of Reinhold and H Richard Niebuhr Souled Out will help change how we think and talk about religion and politics in the post Bush era br
