Thom Hartmann continues his vital series of ‘Hidden History’ books tonight with his newest, The Hidden History of American Oligarchy: Reclaiming Our Democracy from the Ruling Class (Berret-Koehler), this following those earlier: The Hidden History of Monopolies, The Hidden History of the War on Voting, The Hidden History of the Supreme Court and the Betrayal of America, and The Hidden History of Guns and the Second Amendment. There have been other vital books, as well.
“With his awesome command of history and politics, Thom Hartmann presents a terrifying, captivating, and meticulously documented analysis of the treachery by which the ruthlessly deranged gained the loyalty of the desperate using money’s power to corrupt. An urgent and essential read for those who seek a world that works for all.” —David C. Korten.
“Thom Hartmann’s must-read new book is equally frightening and inspiring. It offers both a dire warning about the threat posed to our nation by the growing power of oligarchs and a prescription on how to save our nation from it.” —Dean Obeidallah.
