With his acclaimed wit and acuity, Thomas Frank turns his eye on the 'thirty-year backlash' - the common man's revolt against a supposedly liberal establishment. He charts the Republican Party's success in building the most unnatural of alliances: between blue-collar Midwesterners and Wall Street business interests; between workers and bosses; between populists and right-wingers. Taking the state of Kansas as a paradigm, Frank describes how a place famous for its radicalism became one of the most conservative states in the union. He also seeks to answer some broader riddles: why do so many Americans vote against their economic and social interests? And whatever happened to middle-American progressivism? Frank reveals the true story, showing how voters have been persuaded to elevate 'values' and down-home qualities above hard questions of policy. A brilliant analysis, and funny to boot, What's the Matter with America? presents a critical assessment of the state of America today.… (mere)

He's a really entertaining and smart writer. ( )

That explains a lot, and absolutely nothing all at the same time. Right-wing arguments do not make sense to me -- morals are one thing, complete detrimental ignorance is another (of course, that comment is coming from a Liberal Elitist). ( )

A great book to read during the US election season ( )

At about 250 pages, I still found this book a little overlong and boring. The points it makes are interesting and many of the things observed have continued or even worsened since 2004, but there isn't that much variety here. The same points could've been relayed in about 1/5 of the length or less. Reading this just felt like a chore after a while. ( )

I live in the midwest so this hits very close to home. The historical standpoint in this book really weaves together current events on why our political system is the way it is today. ( )

Frank's book is remarkable as an anthropological artifact. Although not terribly successful at explaining the cultural divide, it manages to exemplify it perfectly in its condescension toward people who don't vote as Frank thinks they should.
