Obama and America's Political FutureBook - 2012
Barack Obamas galvanizing victory in 2008, coming amid the greatest economic crisis since the 1930s, opened the door to major reforms. But the president quickly faced skepticism from supporters and fierce opposition from Republicans, who scored sweeping wins in the 2010 midterm election. Here, noted political scientist Theda Skocpol surveys the political landscape and explores its most consequential questions: What happened to Obamas “new New Deal”? Why have his achievements enraged opponents more than they have satisfied supporters? How has the Tea Partys ascendance reshaped American politics?
