Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In this startling history, Radosh shows how far to the extreme Left the Democratic Party has moved in the last 30 years. Beginning in 1964 and continuing through history to current times, Radosh shows that no Democrat can ever recapture the core coalition of the New Deal. This is a devastating work of history that uncovers why the center of the party cannot hold.

Review:
Tracing the Democratic Party's shift to the left over the last thirty years and its concurrent demise, the author proposes that the Democrats will never be able to recapture the strength of the New Deal.

Product Description

Review:
In Divided They Fell, Ronald Radosh argues that the Democratic Party began unraveling because of its turn toward liberalism in the 1960s. That liberalism, argues Radosh, the Senior Okin Professor of History at Adelphi University, "ignored and ridiculed the conservative desires of white ethnic working-class Americans who once voted Democratic as a matter of ritual." Radosh traces the roots of this demise to the 1964 Democratic National Convention during which white Mississippi delegates walked out after support was shown for the Freedom Democratic Party. With evidence and anecdote, he follows this thread of liberalism through to the presidency of Bill Clinton.
