Acclaim for The Tea Party and the Remaking of Republican Conservatism:
-- Timothy Noah, The New York Times Book Review
"A timely study of a contemporary movement and its far-reaching effects on politics and policy."
"This is an indispensable guide to the Tea Party phenomenon, and also an excellent demonstration of the power of first-hand research to add a richness of understanding that survey results can't provide. By spending patient time with Tea Party activists around the country, Skocpol and Williamson have been able to create a far fuller picture of the Tea Party than we have had before."
--Nicholas Lemann, Dean, and Henry R. Luce Professor of Journalism, Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University
"The richest, most nuanced portrait of the Tea Party since it burst onto the political scene in early 2009. Drawing on a wealth of observational, interview, survey, and web-based research, their analysis and presentation is both sympathetic with the participatory ethic of the Tea Partiers and critical of the way they have been used by conservative advocacy groups and press outlets to breed misinformation and shift the Republican agenda sharply to the right."
--Thomas Mann, co-author of The Broken Branch: How Congress is Failing America and How to Get It Back on Track
This book delves deeply into what happened in 2010, why it happened, and what the Tea Party means for the future of American politics. It's a book every student of American politics should read."
--Mickey Edwards, author of The Modern Conservative Movement
