Reviews

"The New York Times" Editors Choice
What a relief it is, then, to read Eric Alterman s superb new book "The Cause."
"The Boston Globe"
Thorough and thoughtful. "Kirkus Reviews"
So many books lately on the rise of the Right, but here, finally, is a history of postwar liberalism. Media critic, political columnist (e.g., "The Nation"), CUNY journalism professor, and best-selling author (e.g., "Why We re Liberal"), Alterman joins with Ohio University professor Mattson to define liberalism through the individuals who have shaped it over the last decades. Important for current events readers except in really red states."
"Library Journal"
[A]n illuminating history of postwar politics, international relations, culture, and philosophy all in one scrupulously researched volume.
"Publishers Weekly"
[Eric] Alterman and [Kevin] Mattson present an impressive history.
"Library Journal"
"The Cause" is at its best in its deft articulation of the inseparability of liberalism s strengths and weaknesses.
"Yale Alumni Magazine"
"The Cause" provides an ample arsenal of information to remind liberals that theirs is the side of virtue.

Witty . Simply by telling this story it reminds us that "liberal" has always been and remains one of the ways of being a patriotic, constructive American.
