Listen, liberal, or, What ever happened to the party of the people? by Frank, Thomas, 1965- author, narrator.

Listen, liberal, or, What ever happened to the party of the people?

An audiobook that asks: what's the matter with Democrats? With his trademark sardonic wit and lacerating logic, Thomas Frank lays bare the essence of the Democratic Party's philosophy and how it has changed over the years. A form of corporate and cultural elitism has largely eclipsed the party's old working-class commitment, he finds. For certain favored groups, this has meant prosperity. But for the nation as a whole, it is a one-way ticket into the abyss of inequality. In this critical electio

The half has never been told - slavery and the making of American capitalism by Baptist, Edward E., author.

The half has never been told - slavery and the making of American capitalism

In The Half Has Never Been Told, historian Edward E. Baptist reveals the alarming extent to which slavery shaped our country politically, morally, and most of all, economically. Until the Civil War, our chief form of innovation was slavery. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from their slaves, giving the country a virtual monopoly on the production of cotton, a key raw material of the Industrial Revolution. As Baptist argues, this frenz

The last painting of Sara De Vos - a novel by Smith, Dominic, 1971- author.

The last painting of Sara De Vos - a novel

A profound pleasure of being swept into vivid new worlds, worlds peopled by characters so intriguing and real that we can't shake them, even long after the reading's done.
