GRAND NEW PARTY lays bare the failures of the conservative revolution and presents a detailed agenda of the issues Republicans must address in the upcoming elections in order to ensure victory for the next generation. Blending history, analysis, and fresh, often controversial recommendations, Ross Douthat and Reihan Salam argue that it is time to move beyond the Reagan legacy and the mind-set of the current Republican power structure. In a concise examination of recent political trends, the authors show that Democrats' emphasis on cultural libertarianism has made the working class feel unsafe, while the Republicans' embrace of a small government, tax-cutting philosophy undermines New Deal programs they hold sacred. GRAND NEW PARTY establishes a new paradigm for a limited--but not passive--government that speaks directly to these cultural and economic anxieties. With specific proposals covering such hot-button topics as health care, the future of entitlements, taxes, and immigration policy, GRAND NEW PARTY will shake up the Right, electrify the Left, and force both sides to confront and adapt to the changing political landscape.
