Summary
"With his trademark blend of political history, social science, economics, and pop culture ... Jonah Goldberg makes the timely case that America and other democracies are in peril as they lose the will to defend the values and institutions that sustain freedom and prosperity. Instead we are surrendering to populism, nationalism and other forms of tribalism."--Amazon.com summary
