Overview

Building beyond Lakoff’s election-year best-seller, Don’t Think of an Elephant, this new book shows how the values of American voters are dramatically shifting. With the arrival of the 2008 election year, a rising feminized majority—made up of both women and men—is emerging as the pivotal force in American politics. Emerging trends show these values are broadly progressive and address not just the needs of women but the general interests of society. Though they are held by women substantially more than men, these have become the values held by a majority of all voters, including millions of men.

Like earlier periods in American history, such as the New Deal era, the rise of the feminized majority today presents an opportunity for the Democrats to become the governing party for decades to come. Looking beyond the 2008 election, Adam and Derber describe a new political strategy that targets the feminized base and opens up a window for major social justice movements to make progressive change.

Like Lakoff’s, this striking new book—perfectly timed for the 2008 election year—offers a new vocabulary for every citizen who wants to understand (and reimagine) American politics. It will intrigue and provoke readers, stirring up new conversations among progressives and new insights for every citizen interested in politics, morality, religion, values, and social justice.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This hopeful book from Adam (her coauthor's former student) and Derber (sociology, Boston Coll.) will resonate most with Democrats, but it's aimed at a general audience. The authors interpret the polling data of recent years as indicating more "feminized" values in the electorate and advise all Democrats to embrace these values. Recommended for public and undergraduate libraries.


—Donna L. Davey, Margaret Heilbrun
