Summary
In a world of sound bites, deliberate misinformation, and a political scene colored by the blue versus red partisan divide, how does the average educated American find a reliable source that's free of political spin? What You Should Know About Politics... breaks it all down, issue by issue, explaining who stands for what, and why -- whether it's the economy, income inequality, Obamacare, foreign policy, education, immigration, or climate change. If you're a Democrat, a Republican, or somewhere in between, it's a way to brush up on a single topic or read through to get a deeper understanding of the often mucky world of American politics. This is a guide to understanding the background to the 2016 presidential election, but it also transcends the season. It's for anyone who wants to know more about the perennial issues that will continue to affect our everyday lives. The third edition includes an introduction by Naomi Wolf discussing the themes and issues that have come to the fore during the 2016 presidential cycle
