The Australian reviews The New Hate

Nice review of The New Hate in The Australian. My book is bracketed with Frank’s Pity the Billionaire.

Goldwag’s book makes a wonderful complement to Frank’s more openly polemical analysis. While Frank stresses the unique aspects of the Tea Party movement, Goldwag stresses its continuity with the past (the “new hate”, he argues, is the old hate repackaged). Between them, they get to the heart of a movement that it’s all too easy to dismiss out of hand. Both books are excellent, but together they’re essential.

And here’s a less friendly review from the Canberra Times, that links me with Martha Nussbaum.

  1. Coincidence (or not??) I read Frank’s “Pity the Billionaire”, then directly after read “The New Hate”. And I got the same micro/macro picture that this review posits.
