Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America

by Nancy MacLean
£9.99   paperback  Scribe Publications (2017)

Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right An explosive exposé of the man who devoted his career to shackling democracy — and succeeded.
 
Libertarian billionaires are using their wealth and power to drastically curtail the US democratic process, disempowering ordinary citizens whilst entrenching the influence of corporations as never before. In Democracy in Chains, award-winning historian Nancy MacLean reveals how the ideas of Nobel Prize-winning political economist James McGill Buchanan have been used to undermine the power of voters in a country whose Constitution is founded on the principle ‘We the people’.
 
Now, with Mike Pence as Vice President, this chilling movement has a loyalist in the White House, as well as supporters in the House, the Senate, a majority of state governments, and the courts. Democracy in Chains is a timely, important book, which should be read by anybody interested in the future of democracy.
