Hi all, Just submitted for proofing "Why We're Liberals: a Political Handbook for Post-Bush America" by Eric Alterman. It's been read through and corrected. All headers stripped; page numbers and chapter titles present, protected and formatted. Lots of proper names; 402 pages. Description: The bestselling author demolishes myths about liberalism in a spirited polemic Thanks to the machinations of the right, there is no dirtier word in American politics today than ?liberal??yet public opinion polls consistently show that the majority of Americans hold liberal views on everything from health care to foreign policy. In this feisty, accessible primer, bestselling author Eric Alterman sets out to restore liberalism to its rightful honored place in our political life as the politics of America?s everyday citizens. In Why We?re LiberalsAlterman examines liberalism?s development and demonstrates how its partisans have come to represent not just the mainstream, but also the majority of Americans today. In a crisply argued though extensively documented counterattack on right-wing spin and misinformation, Alterman briskly disposes of such canards as ?Liberals Hate God? and ?Liberals Are Soft on Terrorism,? reclaiming liberalism from the false definitions foisted upon it by the right and repeated everywhere else. Why We?re Liberals brings clarity and perspective to what has often been a one-sided debate for nothing less than the heart and soul of America.
