Editorial Reviews

Gore Vidal
“Of all the giant slayers now afoot in the great American desert, John Nichols’s sword is the sharpest, his footwork the most graceful, his brain the most cunning.”
Bill Moyers
“The Tom Paine … of our time.”
Naomi Klein
“A chilling reminder of how much rich American history has been erased by shallow messaging. A crucial book.”
Laura Flanders
“What? Not a nasty foreign import? As American as Walt Whitman and Emma Lazarus? Much as John Nichols’s timely book may befuddle Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck, Americans embarrassed by the slurs surrounding all things socialist will find much to think about in The “S” Word.”
