About this product
- DescriptionOffering a broad historical perspective, Selfa shows how the Democratic Party has time and again betrayed the aspirations of ordinary people while pursuing an agenda favorable to Wall Street and U.S. imperial ambitions. He examines the relationship between party leaders and social movements, from the civil rights struggle to the movement to end the Iraq war; reveals the unhappy marriage between U.S. labor and the -party of the people;- and assesses the mixed record of attempts to build a third party alternative. Further, Selfa argues that the Democrats' record of backing the rich and breaking promises to its voting base is t a recent departure from an otherwise laudable past, but results from its role as one of two parties serving the interests of the U.S. establishment.
- Author BiographyLance Selfa is an editor of and contributor to International Socialist Review. He edited The Struggle for Palestine (Haymarket, 2002). He lives in Chicago.
