DescriptionIn Divided They Fell, Ronald Radosh argues that the Democratic Party began unraveling because of its turn toward liberalism in the 1960s. That liberalism, argues Radosh, the Senior Okin Professor of History at Adelphi University, "ignored and ridiculed the conservative desires of white ethnic working-class Americans who once voted Democratic as a matter of ritual." Radosh traces the roots of this demise to the 1964 Democratic National Convention during which white Mississippi delegates walked out after support was shown for the Freedom Democratic Party. With evidence and anecdote, he follows this thread of liberalism through to the presidency of Bill Clinton.
