“Democracy in Chains: The Deep History Of The Radical Right’s Stealth Plan For America”

Winner of the Lillian Smith Book Award, Democracy in Chains…is an explosive exposé of the right’s relentless campaign to eliminate unions, suppress voting, privatize public education, stop action on climate change, and alter the Constitution. In a brilliant and engrossing narrative, Nancy MacLean shows that billionaires taking over our government is a secretive political establishment with long, deep, and troubling roots; beginning in the embattled Jim Crow South by the Nobel Prize-winning political economist James McGill Buchanan. MacLean is the award-winning author of Behind the Mask of Chivalry and Freedom is Not Enough. She is the William Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke University.
