Summary, etc.:
"An indictment of the Republican Party from one of the most successful Republican political operatives of his generation"-- Provided by publisher.
Stevens spent decades electing Republicans at every level, from presidents to senators to local officials. Here he offers a devastating portrait of a party that has lost its moral and political compass. Stevens shows how Trump is the natural outcome of five decades of hypocrisy and self-delusion, dating all the way back to the civil rights legislation of the early 1960s. Racism has always lurked in the modern GOP's DNA, as has the rank hypocrisy of the party's claims to embody "family values" and fiscal responsibility. Stephen helped to create the modern party that kneels before a morally bankrupt con man-- and now he wants nothing more than to see it held accountable. -- adapted from jacket.
