The Liberal Hour: Washington and the Politics of Change in the 1960s - G. Calvin Mackenzie, Robert Weisbrot - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Liberal Hour:

The history of the liberal movement and how it grew big enough to reform Washington.

My favorite Mackenzie/Weisbrot quote from the book:

"Protest was choreographed for its visual impact."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you believe in party politics?

Are you a liberal or conservative?

My review of The Liberal Hour:

A detailed look into the rise of liberalism.

Explains the major causes and contributors.

A great read about how modern liberal philosophy came into being.
