About the Book
Connecting the dots between the Goldwater era of the 1960s and the ascent of Trump, Tuesday Night Massacre charts the radicalization of the Republican Party and the rise of the independent expenditure campaign, with its divisive, negative techniques, a change that has deeply--and perhaps permanently--warped the culture of bipartisanship that once prevailed in American politics.
