Hear Nancy MacLean talk about her book, DEMOCRACY IN CHAINS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 4PM Source Booksellers 4240 Cass Avenue, Detroit Booklist calls Democracy in Chains “perhaps the best explanation to date of the roots of the political divide that threatens to irrevocably alter American government.” The Guardian said: “It’s the missing chapter: a key to understanding the politics of the past half century.” It is a finalist for the National Book Award. In Democracy in Chains, MacLean traces the history of the radical right’s thought in the United States, outlining their campaigns to privatize everything from public education to Social Security. She begins her story in the 1950s, as the civil rights movement is fighting to desegregate the public schools, and follows the career of political economist James McGill Buchanan as he hooks up with various wealthy libertarians, most particularly Charles Koch. For this reason, her book and scholarship has come under attack by the radical right. MacLean is the immediate past president of the Labor and Working Class History Association and author of Behind the Mask of Chivalry: The Making of the Second Ku Klux Klan and Freedom is Not Enough: The Opening of the American Workplace. Following her talk, Nancy MacLean will sign copies of Democracy in Chains, available at Source Booksellers.
