Editorial Reviews

John Gandelman
In these days of ideology and partisan-based new and old media commentary, it’s extremely hard to find a book that lays out solid information, is packed with research that recounts and analyzes current events, is reliable as a valuable reference tool for anyone of any party or ideology, and is written in a style that’s lively but as seriously and skillfully as columns by the Washington Post’s late David Broder. Now there is a book that does just that. It has gotten less publ

Dr. Levine's excellent new book, like his previous book (Shock Therapy For The American Health Care System), presents a detailed vision of its topic based on well-researched and well-organized background information, and it has already attracted wide attention. The author's letter introducing the book was published in the New York Times (December 28, 2011) and then reprinted on January 1 as the focus of that newspaper's "Sunday Dialogue" feature.

I wasn't too surprised to hear that "pragmatism" is Webster's most searched word this year. And "search" is the operative notion. I'm sick of the partisan ideology that suffocates Washington, and Bob Levine has some pragmatic ideas about getting democracy breathing again.

Meet the Author

A VietNam vet and a Columbia history major who became a medical doctor, Robert A. Levine has watched the evolution of American politics over the past 40 years with increasing alarm. He knows he’s not alone. Partisan grid-lock, massive cash contributions and even more massive expenditures on lobbyists have undermined real democracy, and there is more than just a whiff of corruption emanating from Washington. If the nation is to overcome lockstep partisanship, restore growth to the economy and bring its debt under control, Levine argues that it will require a strong centrist third party to bring about the necessary reforms. Author of four books, Levine’s previous book, Shock Therapy For the American Health Care System, took a realist approach to health care from a physician’s informed point of view; Resurrecting Democracy takes a similar pragmatic approach, putting aside ideology and taking a hard look at facts on the ground.
