Kevin Phillips forty years ago accurately foresaw the rise of the Republican party. Now, he sees doom ahead:
…his new book, American Theocracy, argues that the Republican Party — and the country — is headed for disaster.
Subtitled “The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century,” American Theocracy puts the trials of modern America into the context of other great historical powers. From Rome to Great Britain, Phillips identifies the keys to their decline — and draws parallels to modern America.
