Editorial Reviews


Antidemocracy in America is essential reading for understanding the deep divisions within American society, which are not new and have led us to this critical moment in U.S. political culture. -- Alondra Nelson, author of The Social Life of DNA: Race, Reparations, and Reconciliation After the Genome

This provocative book offers an all-star lineup for scholars from multiple disciplines who provide a fascinating analysis of the anti-democratic forces that have gained hold within the United States. As readers try to make sense of the era of Trump, this is a perfect starting point to make sense of the troubling developments we have seen. -- Kevin Kruse and Julian Zelizer, coauthors of Fault Lines: A History of the United States Since 1974

This book offers readers more than respite from the relentless buzz of tweets, shares, and posts that overcrowd our daily consciousness; it supplies a beneficial point of departure for thinking critically about the direction of our political life in these challenging times. Antidemocracy in America is thoughtfully curated and insightful. -- Anthony S. Chen, author of The Fifth Freedom: Jobs, Politics, and Civil Rights in the United States, 1941-1972

Recommended for readers seeking a critique of the Trump administration from multiple progressive liberal perspectives based on public policy themes. ― Library Journal
