“The roots of American liberalism are not compassion but snobbery. So argues historian Fred Siegel in The Revolt Against the Masses. Siegel traces the development of liberalism from the cultural critics of the post WWI years to the gentry liberals today, and he shows how the common thread is scorn for middle-class Americans and for America itself. This is a stunningly original—and convincing—book.”
   — Michael Barone, senior political analyst at the Washington Examiner, resident fellow at the
      American Enterprise Institute, and co-author of The Almanac of American Politics
