Book reviews on the subject of politics.

    4.5* - An absolute eye opener!

    "Boom! A Revolting Situation" byThomas Harryis a tough-minded, eye-opening appraisal of American Democracy that highlights serious lack of choice in today's political arena. Party identification is unraveling. Nothing has yet developed to fill this void. THe result: millions of political Independents. "Boom!" clarifies the primary historical (and on-going) antagoism in American politics and identifies what may well be the political objective of Independents. It then walks its readers through how this plurality of political orphans might achieve this goals. It's an option that doesn't rely on the failed ideological approach of today's duopoly.

    A unique book in its field, "The Gathering of the Clan" by author Thomas Richard Harry, is potentially explosive in its implications for America's two political parties. It clearly and decisevely highlights "the elephant in the room" that everyone, republicans and democrats alike; wants to walk around; wants to ignore; and minimizes as politically inconsequential as a political force. That elephant is political independents, the largest (potential) bloc of registered voters in America! Yet today, everyone recognizes that neither party can win an election without seducing enough of these forty- odd percent of voters, these politically homeless Americans, to vote their ticket. At election time, independents are wooed, and treated with respect, but at all other times, they are devoid of either political influence, or interest.
