Clarity from a historical perspective, perhaps?

Eileen I am thrilled to see a book on this topic. Thank goodness someone is differentiating historically between Democrats and progressives. At one time the Republicans were progressive, after all (I'm thinking amendments 13, 14 and 15 to the U.S. Constitution). And political positions are so contingent, so situational....it does not make sense to me to categorize a political party for more than an administration at a time.

This book looks like something that will be useful in teaching U.S. history. I will have to read it to see if it is at the college level. The subtitle is nice from my perspective but I would have to balance it with a book titled something like, "Making Rich People Richer: Real Americans Speak". Or something like that. ;-)
