Summary
"This revised and updated editions of 'The Democrats: a critical history' brings the analysis up to the eve of the 2012 presidential election season. Not only is the text revised in light of developments since 2008-- most importantly, the financial and economic crisis that emerged full-blown during the 2008 presidential campaign-- but it offers an unsparing look at the Obama administration's domestic and foreign policies. The book explains why Obama and the Democrats dashed progressives' hopes in 2006 and 2008"--Page 4 of cover
