Middle Class Dreams: The Politics and Power of the New American Majority
The United States is in the midst of a historic political upheaval. Its middle class is increasingly disillusioned with official Washington and with the two major parties, neither of which is able to inspire confidence. Now Stanley Greenberg, the nation`s preeminent analyst of public opinion, gives a brutally honest account of the causes and effects of this middle-class rebellion. Greenberg shows how Democrats and Republicans have historically wooed the middle class and why these traditional party strategies produced thirty years of growing party failure. He outlines the daunting challenges each major party faces in order to win back the middle-class voters in this new period of our history.
