Description

Nancy MacLean – Democracy in Chains

#AlanMissenOration #mwf17

Discover the hidden backstory of the American radical right’s political agenda. Nancy MacLean exposes the six-decade-long strategy spearheaded by economist James McGill Buchanan in the 1950s to disempower democracy and entrench corporate control – and how it is undermining the power of voters in a country founded on the principle ‘We the people’.

Nancy MacLean is the award-winning author of Behind the Mask of Chivalry, a New York Times noteworthy book of the year, and Freedom is Not Enough, which was called ‘contemporary history at its best’ by The Chicago Tribune. She is a professor of history and public policy at Duke University, and lives in Durham, North Carolina. Her latest book, Democracy in Chains, will be published by Scribe in September.
