Overview

"For those of us who understand that America's greatest progress is achieved not by cheering on things as they are but by demanding change, Mark Green's Losing Our Democracy is a must-read book." -Senator John Kerry

With Losing Our Democracy, Mark Green reveals how the far and religious right, a coalition of big business and, most shockingly, President Bush and his White House are in the process of undermining our democracy. With careful, reasoning and brilliant style, he provides anecdotes and extensive evidence which demonstrate how our liberty has fallen under attack. Subjects include voter suppression, religious, corporate, and legislative tyranny, so-called tort reform, the problem of purchased politicians and the far right's Stone-Age approach to race and civil rights.

"Mark Green's Losing Our Democracy describes with compelling evidence how the Bush administration and the far right have, in the wake of 9/11, compromised our civil liberties and our national security policy." -Senator Russ Feingold
