Frank, Thomas

SUMMARY

A New York Times bestseller and Notable Book of the year, What's the Matter with Kansas?-sharp, spirited, and sorely needed-has already become a classic political and cultural critique. Hailed as "dazzlingly insightful", "very funny and very painful", and "the best political book of the year", What's the Matter with Kansas? unravels the great political mystery of our day: Why do so many Americans vote against their economic and social interests? With his acclaimed wit and acuity, Thomas Frank answers the riddle by examining his home state, Kansas-a place once famous for its radicalism that now ranks among the nation's most actively anti-liberal-and reveals how conservatism, formerly a marker of class privilege, became the creed of millions of ordinary Americans. A brilliant analysis-and funny to boot-What's the Matter with Kansas? is a vivid portrait of an upside-down world where blue-collar patriots recite the Pledge while they strangle their life chances; where small farmers cast their votes for a Wall Street order that will eventually push them off their land; and where a group of frat boys, lawyers, and CEOs has managed to convince the country that it speaks on behalf of the People.Frank, Thomas is the author of 'What's The Matter With Kansas? How Conservatives Won The Heart Of America', published 2005 under ISBN 9780805077742 and ISBN 080507774X.
