Product description

Review

"Impressive - a perceptive and rigorous structural analysis." - David Montgomery, The Nation "One of the most uncompromising books about American political economy ever written - brilliant, provocative, and exhaustively researched." - Village Voice Literary Supplement "One of the most trenchant and original analyses of American politics." - Socialist Review

Synopsis

Prisoners of the American Dream is Mike Davis's brilliant exegesis of a persistent and major analytical problem for Marxist historians and political economists: Why has the world's most industrially advanced nation never spawned a mass party of the working class? This series of essays surveys the history of the American bourgeois democratic revolution from its Jacksonian beginnings to the rise of the New Right and the re-election of Ronal Reagan, concluding with some bracing thoughts on the prospects for progressive politics in the United States.
