2-0 out of 5 stars Vigilance, Readers!
In fairness, I have not yet finished the book.Yet I am already disappointed that so little was included about the European ideological and theological heritage that went into the Articles and the Constitution.Also, very little was said about the motivations and concerns of the Anti-Federalists.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars For the layman's library as well as the expert's
If you--like this reader--want to be an educated newspaper reader and voter, then this book is worth the investment in time and money.Professional reviews indicate Amar's brilliance in the field of constitutional law, but that brilliance translates into a highy readable book.
3-0 out of 5 stars For lawyers and scholars only
America's Constitution follows the US Constitution, from the soaring brillinace of the preamble, through article 7 and each of the amendments.Amar describes in depth the historical and political background of each section and explains what the drafters had intended, why it was written with the particular words and expressions that were used, and the intended and unintended consequences of the choices made by the framers.
5-0 out of 5 stars great intro to the constitution
Amar explains in his postscript that his aim in writing this book was "to offer a comprehensive account of America's Constitution, introducing the reader both to the legal text (and its consequences) and to the political deeds that gave rise to that text." He has achieved this aim splendidly. This phrase-by-phrase guided tour through the document never fails to inform and provoke, whether or not one agrees with its author (and I don't always). It's also a very approachable book, in terms of both style and content. The knowledge base assumed here is considerable, but not forbidding: anybody with a good working knowledge of the Seven Articles and the better-known Amendments ought to be able to thread his way profitably through Amar's lucid and energetic narrative.

Editorial Review

In the first of his three debates with George W. Bush, 2004 presidential candidate John Kerry argued against the war in Iraq not by directly condemning it but by citing the various ways in which airport and commercial shipping security had been jeopardized due to the war's sizable price tag. In so doing, he re-framed the war issue to his advantage while avoiding discussing it in the global terrorism terms favored by President Bush. One possible reason for this tactic could have been that Kerry familiarized himself with the influential linguist George Lakoff, who argues in Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Is Framing really the issue?
I came to the 'Elephant' book by way of O'Reilly's Culture Warrior. I'm not one to be spoon fed something without checking out details, if they are provided. O'Reilly provides plenty of names, events, organizations for someone like me to verify the truth or 'stretch' or a point.
1-0 out of 5 stars secularist advice for guaranteed failure
George Lakoff's advice and efforts to help John Kerry in the election really worked out well. It's obvious Lakoff is dispensing the same wonderful advice to the DNC Chair Howard Dean. As an Independent conservative I am thrilled with George Lakoff's work. Thanks, Georgie

The idea of Wallis' book "God's Politics" was to have the general public, liberals in particular, learn something while both parties work together to improve their political differences that are having some negative effects on the world around them. For anyone in search of ways on how to make those transform those ideas into reality, this book is a must-have. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
Winning Elections is a compilation of articles that have been assembled by Editor, Ronald Faucheux.As a newcomer to politics I found this book to be especially informative. It is about processes and strategies that campaigns employ.This book, however, is not a beginner's book. It is not about building a campaign, or learning the nuts and bolts of campaigns.It is much more than that.This book is meant to build upon existing skills that successful managers and consultants are doing.In reality, there are not set right or

This book would be better titled as "Moving Towards Socialism: America's turn to try the worst social/economic system ever devised."
3-0 out of 5 stars War on Terror Chapter is Buried in Back of Book
Rahm Emanuel and Bruce Reed do not even deal with terrorism, the greatest threat to the citizens of the United States, until page 148!This would be hysterically funny if the stakes were not so high. Neither the Daily Kos nor George Soros are ever mentioned in the entire book. The authors are very well aware that disingenuous pacifism pervades the Democratic Party.Sadly, they are doing their best to hide the truth from the American people. Did they actually think they could get away with it?

1-0 out of 5 stars Hayek--Orwell's Mentor
At the height of socialist popularism in England, cir. 1944,George Orwell, a leading proponent of socialism, believing in its promises as did many,if not most of Eurpose's leading intellectuals and politicians, wrote a review of Hayek's famous book, "The Road to Serfdom."Orwell wrote the review in the "Observer," London April 9,1944.
5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, timeless classic
The Constitution of Liberty is "a comprehensive restatement of the basic principles of a philosophy of freedom" (p. 3).It is often considered the magnum opus of Hayek's political writings, even if The Road to Serfdom is perhaps better known.
5-0 out of 5 stars Shows why there is no elsewhere elsewhere
This is a book that can be right in ways that confound all expertise, a basic text of political economy, brilliant enough to summarize all the mistakes of the twentieth century while they were still happening.With an author born in Europe, aware of a society with classes based on great wealth, where culture was largely the activity of a few thousand incredibly intelligent people, but, due to a bestseller of his own, exposed to the dynamic economic growth of postwar America, teaching in an offbeat center like the University of Chicago, concerned about liberty, law, "The Decline of Socialism and the Rise of the Welfare State," Social Security, and utterly convinced of his main point:the necessity for taxation to pay for whatever benefits a government can contrive.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Shipment early, packing condition
Book arrived on earliest date listed.Packing was simply a tight bubble wrap envelope that (I am sure) resulted in bent corners of book.Otherwise, book in great condition.

4-0 out of 5 stars Why the Change?
This review is somewhat belated.I read the book shortly after its original release. The copy I have has a scarlet letter "A" in the title, which I thought represented perfectly the legacy of this brilliant, but terribly flawed man.It's too bad the title was retooled.
2-0 out of 5 stars A well-documented and biased book
Richard Lowry delivers a well-documented, but highly lopsided view of the Clintons. This is definitely not a book for the critical thinker, or for anyone who wishes to learn more about a brilliant, but unstable president who lacked confidence in his own convictions. Lowry does bring up a few interesting topics, such as Clinton's obsession with his legacy, along with his inability to truly face shaky foreign relations. However, it is too unfortunate when a good writer loses himself in the fissured psychodrama of American politics, which Lowry exhibits in this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating look at the Governator
This book is a fascinating look at a different type of politician.Far from being simply a movie star now "playing" Governor, Mathews' book demonstrates that Schwarzenegger gets involved in the details of public policy to an extent much greater than one would expect.It also is apparent that Schwarzenneger is actually interested in trying to solve some of the state's long term problems, rather than simply staking out positions for political advantage.This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand recent California political history (assuming it can be understood!)

5-0 out of 5 stars The Governator: a fair and balanced look
I won't spend a lot of space going over the same ground as the two capsule reviews, but suffice to say that Los Angeles Times writer Joe Mathews has done an extraordinary job examining Schwarzenegger and how he came to be governor of California, in terms of both the man's strengths and weaknesses. While making the typical mistakes one expects of someone "new" to California politics (though he met Howard Jarvis and closely followed the machinations involved with Prop 13 many years earlier in the late 1970s), Schwarzenegger comes off smarter than one might expect.

3-0 out of 5 stars Exercise In Neo-Marxist Scholasticism Short on Relevance
"Empire", which is now going on five years, attempts in its atmospheric prose to elucidate a totalizing world view of the future of the global economy.What emerges is an optimistic, incurably Hegelian proposition that the current globalization of economics and society, despite its oppressive characteristics, are a necessary (and inevitable) stage of modern capitalist development which must exist in order to bring about the mobilization of the "multitude."Hardt and Negri's boundless faith in the eventual triumph of the "multitude" (i.e. proletariat) is definitively neo-Marxist and utopian.Hardt and Negri further view the struggle as cutting across culture, class, race, and nationality, and that it must be seen as as multi-disciplinary liberation.
1-0 out of 5 stars A Neither Nor Book
If it were really serious postmo scholarship, it would be a bit more honest about its starting points and sources (namely, Deleuze, Guattari, Baudrillard, Lyotard). Certainly an edition edited for America should have more bibliographic information. On the other hand, this book should prove largely inaccessible to the bestselling audience who have bought it and tried to read it (Michael Moore this isn't). That's because they will lack the background in philosophy and the 'superstructuralist' approach to social theory. To conclude, at least I'm honest enough about the book and with myself: having waded the whole way through the book, I'm still reluctant to give it a great review simply because I feel proud about getting through it. It actually made me, after a 20 year hiatus, start reading long works of fiction again.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Emperor Has No Clothes! Beware.
Junk! A pretentious tract that stubbornly applies verbs to abstractions, delights in pompous reification, and curses clarity of thought and word. Some of the historical commentary has limited value; most of the text is like the very worst Hegelian philosophy with few emergent insights. The infamous critisms of Hegel apply exponentially to this text.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An interesting, personal glimpse into politics as an insider sees it
Joe Klein has spent his career interviewing and writing about politicians.This book, Politics Lost, pulls together various threads from this experience to give an interesting, personal glimpse into politics for those of us who have never met a president or presidential candidate.Unfortunately, it's not a pleasant picture.Our schools tend to teach us that our system of government works very well, a shining example for the world.Not so, according to Joe Klein's view of it.He sees, as the subtitle says, that American democracy has been trivialized.
2-0 out of 5 stars The Melodrama of the Mediocre Pundit
It sure is easy for pundits and commentators to get book deals these days, when you can sell a tirade of personal opinions and second guessing as in-depth political analysis. Joe Klein has the added distinction of criticizing other people for doing exactly what he does, and of complaining about political and media trends from which he benefits directly. Klein has a reasonable basic point here about modern lowest-common-denominator politicking, in which image and sloganeering are seen as more important than knowledge and leadership. But Klein, in a display of mind-boggling myopia, can't even see that this exact same phenomenon allows weak and opinionated books like this to qualify as serious political analysis.
3-0 out of 5 stars Political Lying is the Issue
I purchased this book after reading an interview with Joe Klein online. His thesis that both or either the politicians or their "handlers" think we, the public, are stupid may have been misplaced. After reading this book describing ad nauseam the culture and egos of political handlers, I'm left with the impression Klein thinks his readers are stupid. I admire his writing ability but "Politics Lost" could be summed up by a comment Klein made in his Internet interview: America has become a culture of lying, where the public knows their leaders are lying, but get caught up with media fascination with "How good a liar is that particular leader" -- or for that matter any public figure. Lying, unfortunately has become a political art form (i.e., "spinning") rather than being treated as a sign of not really caring or gross "indifference" toward the public. Were he really to focus on the "art of lying" by politicians and political operatives in America this book would not be a lost opportunity, for example, by documenting an "insider's" view of Karl Rove's Machiavellian machinations.Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel has stated that "The opposite of love isn't hate; it is indifference." The real danger of "Politics Lost" is that it fails to recognize that we have come to a perilous point in our society where the public has become too inured to lying to do something about it! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars It's okay
Not bad, but just too obvious.I suppose as an introduction to someone recovering from a desire for Government regulation it mayh be helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Abdication of Responsibility
Rarely do books become more important years after they have been published.

Justice William Brennan, "Government acts like some extra terrestrial power, not an institution that exists to serve.Government can't do anything except as the law allows."

5-0 out of 5 stars Delivered as promised and in great condition
It came a bit slower than expected (say 2 weeks, when I was expecting to get it in one), but overall I was very pleased with the transaction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy Read that Explains How Policy is Made
I am taking a course in Health Policy and the Political System and opted to use this book instead of that recommended by my professor. This book examined all the important aspects of policy making - paying close attention to the political actors - and has helped tremendously in my understanding of the politics surrounding health policy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best book in print on the health policy process
I have used this book for a number of years now in a class I teach on the Politics of Health Policy (along with Kingdon's classic). It provides an excellent overview of how health policy is made and the politics around it, drawing on both the academic literature as well as recent policies. The second edition is heavily revised from the first and contains up to date examples. An excellent academic overview of the health policy process. ... Read more
