Dollarocracy Book Tour
      • Print

Nation Books authors John Nichols and Robert McChesney are embarking on a multi-city book tour. The latest work from the acclaimed authors is Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America

Fresh from the first $10 billion election campaign, Dollarocracy shows how unbridled campaign spending defines our politics and, failing a dramatic intervention, signals the end of our democracy. Blending vivid reporting from the 2012 campaign trail and deep perspective from decades covering American and international media and politics, political journalist John Nichols and media critic Robert W. McChesney explain how US elections are becoming controlled, predictable enterprises that are managed by a new class of consultants who wield millions of dollars and define our politics as never before.

Check out exclusive excerpts from the book at SalonThe Nation, and the Capital Times

"This is the black book of politics-as-industry, an encyclopedic account of money's crimes against democracy ... Dollarocracy is an impressive achievement."
—Thomas Frank

"John Nichols and Bob McChesney make a compelling, and terrifying, case that American democracy is becoming American dollarocracy."
—Naomi Klein

"I hope Dollarocracy reaches a large audience, not just among journalists but among the citizens who will produce the next journalism, so we can all move toward a more open, competent, and trustworthy press."
—Bill Kovach
