A Brief History of American Politics

Here's a 'Five Minute Iliad' of American politics, its back and forth cultural swings, swapping of labels and parsing of hatreds.

It's a too simple Cliffs Notes for the elite political scholar I'm sure, but for me, and perhaps many, who were Republicans, but who realized the party left us, it works. I can now cite chapter and verse to my hold-out Republican friends and family, about how and when the party left me when they accuse me of being an apostate.

For some fun unelitist reading check out 'The Five Minute Iliad and Other Instant Classics' by Greg Nagan, 2000, Fireside Books, New York, NY
