Abstract

At a moment where the collapse of the global economy has led some into the arms of right-wing nationalists like Trump and others to sprint leftward, the work of Thomas Frank has a particular resonance. He is the last of the true New Deal liberals to survive in an age where the welfare state is steadily being dismantled. He has been telling us the story of that dismantling, hoping that we will realize, before it is too late, what it is we will have lost. But in lamenting what's being taken away, it is necessary to remain clear-eyed about the failings of the past, the cracks in the political project that allowed neoliberalism to take root.
