Widely cited by journalists and bloggers as the man to read to understand the political races, New York Times Magazinewriter Matt Bai has written a book about the Democratic Party thatís as riveting as it is timely and vital. The Argumenttakes readers to the front lines of the grassroots progressive movement that is seizing power from the partyís weakened D.C. establishment, capturing a colorful cast of donors and power brokers struggling to articulate a direction: an argument. The result is a fascinating, uniquely candid look at present-day politics.
