"Not just a brilliant anatomy of how capitalism nurtures political freedom, but also a wise and penetrating analysis of the manifold illusions besetting modern culture, from the temptations of totalitarian ideology to the desiccations of radical secularism. As erudite as it is readable, Brian Anderson’s new book is sure to take its place as a contemporary classic."

Roger Kimball, coeditor and publisher, The New Criterion

Democratic Capitalism and Its Discontents Q&A With Jamie Glazov, FrontPageMag.com, 07-09-07
FP: What role does the American Left play in threatening the future of American democracy?
Anderson: The radical Left tries to push egalitarianism to a destructive extreme and moral indeterminacy into out-and-out nihilism. It opposes American religiosity with an angry secularism. It tries to regulate civil society out of existence, replacing it with overweening government. And it seeks to transform constitutionalism into another form of politics through judicial activism. All of these things, I argue, will weaken our democracy and also make it harder to confront the existential threat of our time: radical Islam. . .
