Book Review: "Dark Money"

As a friend of mine said, this book is a “must have” for your non-fiction library and she has bought over a dozen copies and gives them out to interested parties. I initially heard about this book, when the author, Jane Mayer, was interviewed on NPR. I ran to find a pencil, so I could order this interesting book. And, the book turns out to be a well researched accounting of over 50 years of conservatives efforts to control our government and what we, as progressive Democrats need to know, to reverse this control for the future.

 

The New York Times Book Reviewer, Alan Ehrenhalt, does a much better job of reviewing this book. I hope after you read his review, you will make the effort to not only buy the book for your library, but take the time in your busy schedule to truly read and digest this book. Alan states, “Mayer believes that the Koch brothers and a small number of allied plutocrats have essentially hijacked American democracy, using their money not just to compete with their political adversaries, but to drown them out.”
