If you think liberalism is dead, think again. In this controversial book, Jeffrey M. Berry argues that modern liberalism is not only still alive, it's actually thriving.
"Berry marshals copious evidence that over the past four decades, liberal citizen groups have outperformed conservative groups and business lobbies in almost every regard-commanding more positive media attention, winning more legislative victories, and indeed lasting longer as organizations."- The American Prospect
"To Berry's scholarly inquiry, the quality of life, post-materialist agendas of liberal consumer, environmental, civil rights, and civil liberties groups have become institutionalized and are still giving fits to corporate power. The author's arguments should lift both the insights and morale of liberal citizen groups and provide some humility to business and conservative lobbyists who, somehow, believe that our national capital has been theirs since Reagan took office. . . . A dramatically counter-intuitive book that should give media-manufactured perceptions some introspective pause." - Ralph Nader
