Item Description

No one skewers public servants of all political stripes like Uncle John! Here’s a no-holds-barred look at the history and lunacy of our govern-mental machine. Starting with the birth of democracy in the western world, you’ll learn how today’s political landscape was shaped and get an inside look at how government works (and doesn’t work)--from Main Street to Wall Street to Pennsylvania Avenue to the world stage. These 288 pages consist of the most eye-opening political articles from the BRI’s 25-year-history, plus a few all-new pieces ripped from the election-year headlines. So do your civic duty and read about…

Toilet diplomacy
Gingrich vs. the Glitterati
Why a donkey? Why an elephant?
Animals that ran for office…and won
The island election that was buried by a volcanic eruption
The birth, death, and rebirth of America’s major political parties
Why the first U.S. congresswoman had to hide in a phone both
The rapper who (nearly) took a swing at Romney
The Russian czar who taxed the human soul
The secret plot to take down FDR
Poisonous pundits
And much, much more!
