Souled out : reclaiming faith and politics after the religious right by E. J Dionne ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 888 libraries worldwide
The religious and political winds are changing. Religious Americans are reclaiming faith from those who would abuse it for narrow, partisan, and ideological purposes. And more and more secular Americans are discovering common ground with believers on the great issues of social justice, peace, and the environment. Here, journalist E.J. Dionne explains why the era of the Religious Right--and the crude exploitation of faith for political advantage--is over. He shows that the end of the Religious Right signals the of disentanglement of evangelical Christianity from a political machine that sold it out to a narrow electoral agenda. He also argues that the new atheist writers should be seen as a gift to believers, a demand that they live up to their proclaimed values and embrace scientific and philosophical inquiry in a spirit of "intellectual solidarity."--Publisher description.

Stand up, fight back : Republican toughs, Democratic wimps, and the politics of revenge by E. J Dionne ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 627 libraries worldwide
"The author of Why Americans Hate Politics, offers a tough critique of President George W. Bush and the Democratic opposition on the eve of a landmark presidential election - and points to a way out of cynicism and defeatism." "In describing how Democrats, moderates and liberals have failed to match Republicans and conservatives in commitment, resourcefulness, and clarity, Dionne invents what is likely to become a popular parlor game among the politically committed. In "The Wrong Stuff," he lists ten futile arguments - big versus small government, for example - that Democrats keep having with themselves. "The Right Stuff" focuses on ten arguments they should start making about taxes, business, and the role of government."--BOOK JACKET.

Liberalism for a new century ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
American liberalism today is in a state of confusion and disarray, with the "L word" widely considered a term of derision. By examining both the historical past and the fractious present, Liberalism for a New Century restores a proud political tradition and carves out a formidable defense of its philosophical tenets. This manifesto for a New Liberalism issues an urgent and cogent call for the most important rethinking of its values since the late 1960s, when conservatives reenergized themselves after Barry Goldwater's infamous loss. The essays in this volume, most of them never before published, are written by a leading group of historians, journalists, and public intellectuals. Some of the nation's most highly respected liberal minds explore such topics as the classical liberal tradition, postmodernism's challenge to the American "Enlightenment," the civil rights era, the influence of twentieth-century radicals on American liberalism, the 1950s, tolerance, the cold war, and whether liberalism should have a large and aggressive vision. One essay considers liberalism in Iran and what American liberals might learn from this movement. Fast-paced and encompassing such hot-button issues as the family and religion, here are ringside-seat arguments between people who don't often get to engage with one another: right-leaning liberals like Peter Berkowitz and John Patrick Diggins, and leftier liberals like Michael Tomasky and Mona Harrington. The result is a lively and stimulating collection that articulates a clear-minded alternative to the conservative ascendancy in American history and offers a timely and essential contribution to the growing national debate.
