From the PublisherMolly Ivins coauthor of Bushwhacked Given the zeitgeist down at the old corral, E. J. Dionne has written one of the timeliest political tracts since Tom Paine came out with Common Sense. The main thing about E. J. is that he always keeps his head when all about him are losing theirs — except for that slight slip into exasperation on page 196. With E. J. you really get smart analysis, well-informed thinking, and wonderfully commonsensical insight. You do not get a lot of pointless rage, rhetoric, and indignation. It's all in the title, Stand Up Fight Back — and don't just flail away — fight back smart.
Al Franken author of Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them E. J. finally got mad, and thank God! The author of the seminal Why Americans Hate Politics, which gave Clinton his blueprint for winning the White House in 1992, tells Democrats how to do it again.
James Carville and Paul Begala authors of Buck Up, Suck Up E. J. Dionne's Why Americans Hate Politics revolutionized the campaign of 1992 and helped Bill Clinton crack the code to reach the forgotten middle class. We believe Stand Up Fight Back will do the same for Democrats in 2004. It may be the most important new book of this political season.
Richard Reeves author of President Nixon Stand Up Fight Back is the book Democrats have been waiting for and Republicans were hoping no one would write. E. J. Dionne, Jr., lays out the rules of engagement for the critical election of 2004.
Robert Dallek author of An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963 Occasionally, a book appears that helps set a more constructive national political agenda. Stand Up Fight Back is a superb critique of our current politics and a wise statement of what will serve the country's future well-being.
Clarence Page syndicated columnist, Chicago Tribune The man who told us 'Why Americans Hate Politics' is back with a pointed diagnosis for what ails liberals and Democrats, plus a prescription for how we can bridge the gaps between red-state and blue-state Americans.
