Left Eye on Books

American Theocracy

The big news this week in political books is Kevin Phillips American Theocracy. I broadly agree with his analysis, as I've heard it summarized here and there: the religious right is too strong, foreign policy is out of control (although I don't think it's only about oil), and the US is dangerously in debt. I wonder--are we getting this from a former Nixon administration figure because the left is ignored, or because so few left thinkers shoot such big targets with their analysis?
