Summary
  • "A deeply reported look inside the new conservative movement working to undermine American democracy"--
  • "Control of the country is up for grabs--and Republicans are rigging the game in their favor. Twenty-two states have passed restrictions on voting. Ruthless gerrymandering has given the party a long-term grip on Congress. And the Supreme Court has gutted campaign finance laws, boosting candidates backed by big money. The GOP may be on the point of a crackup, but it's moving in lockstep to limit the power of progressive voters. It would be worrying enough if these were just schemes for partisan advantage--but the reality is even more alarming. As reporter Zachary Roth reveals, a growing number of conservatives distrust the very idea of democracy. In The Great Suppression, Roth unearths the historical roots of this anti-egalitarian worldview and travels from Rust Belt cities to Southern towns to introduce us to its modern-day proponents: the Republican officials making it harder to cast a ballot; the Washington lawyers who want to scrap all limits on money in politics; the libertarian scholars working to reclaim judicial activism to roll back the New Deal; the corporate lobbyists looking to ban local action on everything from the minimum wage to the environment. He shows how these campaigns are hurting the most vulnerable Americans and preventing progress on urgent issues. And he highlights the inspiring grassroots efforts that have blossomed to protect and expand democracy in response. Lucid, polemical, and deeply researched, The Great Suppression is an urgent wake-up call about a threat to our most cherished values and a rousing argument for why we need democracy now more than ever."--Dust jacket
