Trumpocracy : the corruption of the American republic by David Frum( Book )

14 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 1,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Russia to South Africa, from Turkey to the Philippines, from Venezuela to Hungary, authoritarian leaders have smashed restraints on their power. The freedom of the media and the judiciary have eroded. The right to vote remains, but the right to have one's vote counted honestly does not. Until the US presidential election of 2016, the global decline of democracy seemed a concern for other peoples in other lands. That complacent optimism has been upended by the political rise of Donald Trump. The crisis is upon Americans, here and now. Quietly, steadily, Trump and his administration are damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy, perhaps irrevocably. As he and his family enrich themselves, the presidency itself falls into the hands of the generals and financiers who surround him. David Frum has been collecting the lies, obfuscations, and flagrant disregard for the traditional limits placed on the office of the presidency. During his own tenure in the White House as speechwriter for George W. Bush, Frum witnessed the ways the presidency is limited not by law but by tradition, propriety, and public outcry, all now weakened. Whether the Trump presidency lasts two, four, or seven more years, he has changed the nature of the office for the worse, and it will likely remain so for decades. In this powerful and eye-opening book, Frum makes clear that the hard work of recovery starts at home. Trumpocracy outlines how Trump could push America toward illiberalism, what the consequences could be for our nation and the world, and what we can do to prevent it"--

Dead right by David Frum( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part reportage, part manifesto, Dead Right leads readers on a witty and opinionated tour through the chaos of post-Reagan conservatism. It explains why the "Religious Right" is a phony menace ... why President Reagan failed to eliminate even one major spending program ... why the 1992 Republican convention, originally conceived as a cunning ploy, backfired ... and much more. David Frum analyzes the conservative movement's turn away from the economic issues that dominated the 1980s to a new preoccupation with race, ethnicity, and sex. He explains how and why conservatives decided to stop fighting Big Government and start using it. And he warns that a conservatism that loses its anti-Big Government faith is doomed to futility. Dead Right dissects the new conservative position on issues ranging from education to workfare, immigration to enterprise zones, and ruthlessly scrutinizes the leadership of the conservative movement. Always lively and provocative, this is the one book that conservatives and their critics must read to understand the past and future of the American Right

What's right : the new conservative majority and the remaking of America by David Frum( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American conservatism in the later 1990s is both triumphant and turbulent. In Dead Right (1994), hailed as required reading for any thinking person, David Frum explained how and why conservatism stands divided. Now, in What's Right, he points the way forward. Frum celebrates a conservatism that defends both liberty and morality: a fusion that has made him one of the country's best-known young conservative commentators. In this collection of essays and articles, Frum dissects Pat Buchanan's populism, explains why Newt Gingrich dominates the Republican Party, examines Colin Powell's brand of bureaucratic conservatism, and mourns the end of Jack Kemp's political career. And, in one of the book's most disturbing sections, he shows how the Republicans have inadvertently built a nominating process as dysfunctional as anything the Democrats have inflicted on themselves. Frum grounds his case in a fascinating tour through conservative intellectual history: the genius of Russell Kirk, the errors of John Maynard Keynes, and the reasons Republicans were right not to be wild about Harry Truman. Perceptive, funny, and challenging, What's Right is a book that readers will return to long after the excitement of campaign '96 has been forgotten; it's conservative thought at its most timeless and quotable

From two of the country's arch-neoconservatives -- a Bush speechwriter and the influential Chairman of the Defense Policy Board -- comes a new book of policy on how to strengthen America. Frum and Perle allege that despite the American conquest of Iraq, Americans are not very safe in the world around them, and that the U.S. government remains unready to defend its people. They sound the alert about the present danger, and give a detailed, candid account of America's vulnerabilities: a military whose leaders resist change, intelligence agencies mired in bureaucracy, and diplomats who put friendly relations with their foreign colleagues ahead of the nation's interests. They lay out a bold program to defend America -- and to win the war on terror

Comeback : conservatism that can win again by David Frum( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a moment of crisis and pessimism for American conservatives, David Frum offers fresh ideas-and fresh hope. Not in a generation has conservatism been in as much trouble as it is at the end of the Bush years. A majority of Americans say the country is "on the wrong track." Voters prefer Democrats over Republicans on almost every issue, including taxes. The married, the middle-class, the native-born are dwindling as a share of the population, while Democratic blocs are rising. A generation of young people has turned its back on the Republican party. Too many conservatives and Republicans have shut their eyes to negative trends. David Frum offers answers. Frum says that the ideas that won elections for conservatives in the 1980s have done their job. Republicans can no longer win elections on taxes, guns, and promises to restore traditional values. It's time now for a new approach, including:-A conservative commitment to making private-sector health insurance available to every American-Lower taxes on savings and investment financed by higher taxes on energy and pollution-Federal policies to encourage larger families-Major reductions in unskilled immigration-A genuinely compassionate conservatism, including a conservative campaign for prison reform and government action against the public health disaster of obesity-A new conservative environmentalism that promotes nuclear power in place of coal and oil-Higher ethical standards inside the conservative movement and the Republican party-A renewed commitment to expand and rebuild the armed forces of the United States-to crush terrorism-and get ready for the coming challenge from China. Frum's previous bestselling books have earned accolades for their courage and creativity from liberals and conservatives alike. Today, with the conservative movement and the Republican Party facing their greatest danger since Watergate, Frum has again stepped forward with new ideas to take conservatism-and America-into a new century of greatness

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patriots tells the story of Walter Schotzke, the aimless young heir to America's largest mustard fortune. Walter is sent by his tough-minded grandmother to work in the office of a distinguished U.S. Senator. She hopes her otherwise worthless only grandchild might find purpose, and even appreciation for his country, from political service. In Washington, Walter quickly proves to be a better student of the dark side of politics than he ever was at all the boarding schools he was thrown out of. He gains his education from a farcical faculty of blowhard radio hosts, outraged protestors, think-tank experts-for-hire, shady lobbyists, internet impresarios, and the sexy but sinister talking heads of the 'Patriot News Network.' It is not the experience Walter, or his grandmother, expected. Walter must make some tough decisions fast--leading to the novel's surprising and hilarious conclusion."--Page 4 of cover
