In a provocative challenge to Republican conventional wisdom, two of the Right's rising young thinkers call upon the GOP to focus on the interests and needs of working-class voters.Grand New Party lays bare the failures of the conservative revolution and presents a detailed blueprint for building the next Republican majority. Blending history, analysis, and fresh, often controversial recommendations, Ross Douthat and Reihan Salam argue that it is time to move beyond the Reagan legacy and the current Republican power structure. With specific proposals covering such hot-button topics as immigration, health care, and taxes, Grand New Party shakes up the Right, challenges the Left, and confronts the changing political landscape.

Conserving the American Dream
This book is a fantastic, down-to-earth sequel to the great line of economic thinkers including Smith, Marx, Belloc, Hayek and Friedman. And though the book focuses primarily on the pragmatic--part electoral history, part policy prescriptions--the depth of their concern for the working class and cultural renewal is seen throughout. A second edition with a foreword/afterward on the last eight years is hopefully in the works!
