We have included the dissents in all the major cases ... The second half of the book consists of contemporaneous commentaries on the controversy.

Why the right went wrong : Conservatism-- from Goldwater to the Tea Party and beyond by E. J Dionne( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why the Right Went Wrong offers a historical view of the right since the 1960s. Its core contention is that American conservatism and the Republican Party took a wrong turn when they adopted Barry Goldwater's worldview during and after the 1964 campaign. The radicalism of today's conservatism is not the product of the Tea Party, Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne writes. The Tea Partiers are the true heirs to Goldwater ideology. The purity movement did more than drive moderates out of the Republican Party--it beat back alternative definitions of conservatism
Our divided political heart : the battle for the American idea in an age of discontent by E. J Dionne( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of America's most respected and well-known political analysts weighs in on what is tearing us apart--the ascendancy of individualism and the diminishment of community--just in time for the election. Our Divided Political Heart will be the must-read book of the 2012 election campaign. Offering an incisive analysis of how hyper-individualism is poisoning the nation's political atmosphere, E.J. Dionne Jr. argues that Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been, or what it is, philosophically and spiritually, that makes us Americans. Dionne takes on the Tea Party's distortions of American history and shows that the true American tradition points not to radical individualism, but to a balance between our love of individualism and our devotion to community. Dionne offers both a fascinating tour of American history--from the Founding Fathers to Clay and Lincoln and on to the Populists, the Progressives and the New Dealers--and also an analysis of our current politics that shatters conventional wisdom. The true American idea, far from endorsing government inaction or indifference, has always viewed the federal government as an active and constructive partner with the rest of society in promoting prosperity, opportunity, and American greatness. The ability of the American system to self-correct is its greatest asset and Dionne challenges progressives to embrace the American story. Our fractious but productive past offers us the resources both to rediscover the idea of progress and to put an end to our fears of decline. Our Divided Political Heart will be required reading for all who seek a path out of our current impasse."--Publisher's website

Souled out : reclaiming faith and politics after the religious right by E. J Dionne( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member 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

Community works : the revival of civil society in America( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the quest for community at the turn of the century. It examines why the idea of civil society has become so popular and why so much hope has been invested in the voluntary sector. It also underscores the importance of a vital civil society and disputes the notion that our yearning for a reinvigorated civic life is a form of nostalgia. E.J. Dionne, Jr. puts the debate in perspective and outlines some of the arguments emanating from Right, Left, and Center about what to make of these important mediating community structures. With chapters by renowned scholars, journalists, and policymakers, this book contemplates where successful civic action originates and considers the role played by faith-based organizations in the battle against poverty and neighborhood decline
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 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author 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. With passion, clarity, and humor, E.J. Dionne describes today's political atmosphere as the bitterest he can remember. Never have Democrats been as frustrated by their inability to move the debate. The party of Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Clinton, Dionne says, is lost in pointless feuds, outdated strategies, and old arguments. Democrats have lost track of what they stand for so they don't know what they're fighting for and besides, they've forgotten how to fight back. 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. Dionne zeroes in on how a floundering Bush administration used September 11 to politicize national security issues for partisan advantage. Enraged but intimidated by ruthless opponents, the Democratic party failed to find its voice on security issues and was soundly beaten in 2002. Drawing on some lessons from the 2004 primary campaigns, Dionne argues that anger and frustration have in fact awakened progressives to the need for innovation in organizing, in approaching an increasingly conservative media, and in formulating politically useful and plainly stated ideas. Learning from the conservative movement's successes, liberals have begun the work of reconstruction. The politics of revenge, Dionne argues persuasively, can give way to something better: a progressive patriotism built on hope and optimism about America's role in the world and its capacity to renew social justice at home

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barack Obama's political life can be chronicled through a series of major addresses in which he spoke to the nation with a voice uniquely his own.

Liberalism for a new century by Kevin Mattson( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member 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
