Monroe. 1996. Common Courage Press. 1st Printing. Very Good In Wrappers. 237 pages. paperback. 1567510787. keywords: Politics Right Wing America. inventory # 22420. FROM THE PUBLISHER-ESSENTIAL TO UNDERSTANDING THE MOST POWERFUL POLITICAL MOVEMENT OF OUR TIME. From family values, dominion theology and abortion politics to xenophobia, homophobia and free market environmentalism, Sara Diamond reveals in chilling detail what the Right's agenda means for the United States. FROM THE INTRODUCTION-To challenge the entrenched clout of right-wing movements and organizations, critics must know how the opposition really operates. For progressive people, I am convinced, that means abandoning some preconceived stereotypes about right-wing adversaries. It means knowing the gory details, like connections to hate groups. But it also means coming to terms with the Right's popular, grassroots base of support. It means seeing right-wing movements not as mere puppets for big business. It means looking beyond the psychotics who make headlines with their bloody deeds to see that most activists on the Right work quietly and diligently, using accepted tactics of political influence. It means facing the wrath that comes not just from big, anonymous government agendas and corporate power, but also from some of our own fellow citizens-ordinary people working overtime to effect a thoroughly reactionary policy agenda. ‘It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it. And there's no one better equipped to monitor, analyze and report on the workings and works of the Far Right than Sara Diamond. Facing the Wrath tells us things we may not want to hear about the complexity and strength of the Right's appeal to many disenfranchised Americans, and the very real and present danger which that appeal poses to us all. It is a lesson we had better take to heart. '-ELAYNE RAPPING, Author of The Culture of Recovery: Making Sense of the Self-Help Movement in Women's Lives. ‘No one has a deeper first-hand understanding of the American right than Sara Diamond. Facing the Wrath is a highly readable, essential road map of the desolate fringes of our country's politics, and shows how those fringes have been welcomed into the mainstream Republican Party.
