Rick Pearlstein. . . a tale that boldly overturns almost everything you think you know about Americans' most taken-for-granted right. . .To students of U.S. political development, this counter-history matters a great, great deal. One of the hoariest chestnuts is that no working-class political movement has succeeded in America precisely because the American working class was unqualifiedly granted political rights. That cliche will fade in proportion to the number of people who read and take seriously this book. So will the number of people who take their vote enough for granted never to cast it at all.
