In this, the first book to deal exclusively with conservative politics in California, author Kurt Schuparra pinpoints the myriad factors that led to the formation and rise of the conservative movement in California after World War II, culminating in the election of Ronald Reagan as governor in 1966. While Schuparra is concerned with prominent figures such as Ronald Reagan, California senator William Knowland, Richard Nixon, and Arizona senator Barry Goldwater, his larger interest is in the principal players in the movement behind these individuals, the causes they espoused, and the movement's role in pivotal electoral contests. Schuparra also provides an assessment of how the struggle between liberals and conservatives - and those caught in the middle - in the Golden State both reflected and influenced the national debate over major governmental policies and social issues, particularly on racial matters.

Even in this most partisan and dysfunctional of eras, we can all agree on one thing: Washington is broken. Politicians take increasingly inflexible and extreme positions, leading to gridlock, partisan warfare, and the sense that our seats of government are nothing but cesspools of hypocrisy, childishness, and waste. The shocking reality, though, is that modern polarization was a deliberate project carried out by Democratic and Republican activists. In The Polarizers, Sam Rosenfeld details why bipartisanship was seen as a problem in the postwar period and how polarization was then cast as the solution. Republicans and Democrats feared that they were becoming too similar, and that a mushy consensus imperiled their agendas and even American democracy itself. Thus began a deliberate move to match ideology with party label—with the toxic results we now endure. Rosenfeld reveals the specific politicians, intellectuals, and operatives who worked together to heighten partisan discord, showing that our system today is not (solely) a product of gradual structural shifts but of deliberate actions motivated by specific agendas. Rosenfeld reveals that the story of Washington’s transformation is both significantly institutional and driven by grassroots influences on both the left and the right. The Polarizers brilliantly challenges and overturns our conventional narrative about partisanship, but perhaps most importantly, it points us toward a new consensus: if we deliberately created today’s dysfunctional environment, we can deliberately change it.

يضع بول كروغمان خريطة للطريق المؤدية إلى الإصلاح، وكروغمان هو الاقتصادي الأكثر قراءة لما يكتب على نطاق واسع في العالم، وهو واحد من أكثر المعلقين السياسيين تأثيراً. ويطوف كروغمان في كل اتجاه على قرن من التاريخ، من الاقتصاد السياسي للعصر المموّه، وهو الذي يبدو مألوفاً جداً في هذه الأيام، إلى كوارث سنوات بوش، التي يجادل المؤلف في أنها كانت محتومة بعد أن فازت حركة المحافظين بالسيطرة الكاملة على حكومة الولايات المتحدة. ويبين المؤلف أنه لا (الطبقة الوسطى) التي ترعرع فيها جيل ازدهار المواليد في أمريكا، ولا (أمة حكومة القلة) التي صرنا إليها على نحو متزايد طوال الجيل الماضي تطورا تطوراً طبيعياً، وكلاهما أنشئ ـ إلى حد كبير ـ بفعل خطط سياسية حكومية مستهدية بحركات سياسية منظمة. ويشرح كيف أن المدافعين عن اللامساواة استغلوا الانقسامات الثقافية والعرقية لمصلحتهم، في حين وجد المصلحون طرقاً لتجسير تلك الانقسامات، ويجادل في أن الوقت قد حان من أجل عصر عظيم للإصلاح. وأخيراً وليس آخراً، فإن الكتاب يلخص برنامجاً للتغيير، ويبين البرنامج كيف أن الرعاية الصحية الشاملة تستطيع أن تكون الملمح الرئيس لبرنامج إصلاح جديد، تماماً مثلما كان الضمان الاجتماعي هو لباب برنامج الإصلاح الجديد (نيوديل). ويشرح البرنامج ما الذي يمكن عمله لتضييق فجوة الثروة والدخل، ويبين كيف أن تحالفاً سياسياً جديداً يستطيع في آن معاً أن يدعم الإصلاح، وأن يكون مدعوماً بالإصلاح، وهو ما يجعل مجتمعنا لا مجرد مجتمع أكثر تساوياً بل أكثر ديمقراطية أيضاً. ويعد كتاب (ضمير ليبرالي) بأن يعيد تشكيل الحوار العام حول خطط السياسة الأمريكية الاجتماعية، وأن يصير عملاً معيارياً ومحكاً مرجعياً لجيل كامل.
