Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 211 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A major history of American liberalism and the key personalities behind the movement Why is it that nearly every liberal initiative since the end of the New Deal whether busing, urban development, affirmative action, welfare, gun control, or Roe v. Wade has fallen victim to its grand aspirations, often exacerbating the very problem it seeks to solve? In this groundbreaking work, the first full treatment of modern liberalism in the United States, bestselling journalist and historian Eric Alterman together with Kevin Mattson present a comprehensive history of this proud, yet frequently maligned tradition. In The Cause, we meet the politicians, preachers, intellectuals, artists, and activists from Eleanor Roosevelt to Barack Obama, Adlai Stevenson to Hubert Humphrey, and Billie Holiday to Bruce Springsteen who have battled for the heart and soul of the nation.
