Publisher's Summary

America faces a new culture war. It is not a war about guns, abortions, or gays; rather it is a war against the creeping changes to our entrepreneurial culture, the true bedrock of who we are as a people.

The new culture war is a battle between free enterprise and social democracy. Many Americans have forgotten the evils of socialism and the predations of the American Great Society's welfare-state programs. But, as the American Enterprise Institute's president, Arthur C. Brooks, reveals in The Battle, the forces for social democracy have returned with a vengeance, expanding the power of the state to a breathtaking degree.

The Battle offers a plan of action for the defense of free enterprise; it is at once a call to arms and a crucial redefinition of the political and moral gulf that divides Right and Left in America today. The battle is on, and nothing less than the soul of America is at stake.

Critic Reviews

“This is the playbook for the resurgence of the conservative movement.” (Richard B. Cheney, former U.S. Vice President)
"Arthur Brooks is one of America's most astute, bold, and iconoclastic thinkers. The Battle provides yet more evidence of that fact. Loaded with fresh data and common sense, The Battle uncovers liberalism's true grand agenda—to change America's culture and the American way—and explains how these same Americans can fight back and ultimately win." (William J. Bennett)
"Clear, sharp, well reasoned and tough, The Battle is a must-read for conservatives who want our movement to dominate the intellectual and policy debates of America’s coming vital decades." (Karl Rove)

Right wing

This book is misreprented as a non partisan book. It has an intro by neut gingride. It is a pity because the author has some good points. Buyer beware
