"This highly original work is packed with relevant information, which Greenberg interprets lucidly and scrupulously, and from which he constructs his strategies for change. Anyone concerned with the prospects for moving from the existing political polarization and stalemate to a better America should read this book."
-Robert Dahl, Sterling Professor of Political Science Emeritus, Yale University, and author of numerous political science books including On Democracy and How Democratic is the American Constitution?
"The defining political fact of our time is the division of America. Stan Greenberg has devoted his career to studying those fault lines and strategizing about how to bridge them. The Two Americas is his master work. Whichever party absorbs his insights will have a master plan."
"Written by the nation's most astute political analyst, The Two Americas dissects the U.S. electorate, revealing the human aspirations and historical forces at the root of the current partisan deadlock. Regular Americans speak out, and political parties come alive. Equally important, Greenberg goes beyond analysis to show Democrats the way forward. To recapture momentum and achieve an enduring majority, our party should fight for a '100 Percent America' combining patriotism with opportunity and security for all. This is a perfect formula for 2004 -- and let's hope the Democratic presidential aspirants are listening."
-Theda Skocpol, Professor of Government and Sociology, Harvard University and author of Diminished Democracy
"This is hands down the most important book in American politics in my memory. It is. I can't think of another...well, maybe since The Making of the President, in 1960."
"Memo to the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee: DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. IT LAYS OUT THE BEST STRATEGY I'VE SEEN FOR BEATING BUSH. THAT WOULD BE BAD FOR AMERICA. SO PLEASE, PLEASE-IGNORE STANLEY GREENBERG!"
-William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard and co-author of the bestselling The War Over Iraq
"The Two Americas is a serious book about a serious topic at a serious time. I'd much rather Stan Greenberg be writing smart books about politics than giving Democrats smart advice in them."
-Mary Matalin, Republican analyst and Bush White House adviser
