Sinopsis: The essential process of the U.S. political system is unknown or misunderstood by the vast majority of the American public. A recent poll revealed that nearly two thirds of adult Americans could not name a single States Supreme Court justice! The failure of our education system becomes more apparent when our high school and college students are tested. Things are so bad that the majority believe that the following Marxist dictum, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs," is included in the U.S. Constitution.
This book is designed to inform the American public about the political system that influences much of their lives. It is divided into four parts.
The first part, more than half the book, is called "Issues". Nearly forty important issues, from abortion to welfare, are analyzed and dissected to give the reader an understanding of the important points, from all perspectives, of the forces that shape the topic.
Each "Issues" section contains the following:
* A Summary of the issue as seen by the Right and by the Left
* Well-chosen quotes from people related to the issue.
* Snippets of information that gives the issue substance and perspective.
* Hard facts, statistics, charts and graphs.
The "Political Groups" section lists more than 600 influential political groups. Along with their name, we give a mission statement, their cause, political orientation and their website. We give similar treatment to the next section: "People in Politics". About 550 media types are listed; we give their occupation, political orientation and brief biography. You can't understand the system if you don't speak the language; thus we include a glossary of 400 important political terms.
The book also features a complete index to facilitate readers navigation through the various sections.
Special sections include:
* A List of the 100 Differences between the Left and the Right
* An Elaborate Diagram of the Political Spectrum
* 100 Influential Political Books of the 20th Century
* A List of 100 American Spies, Traitors and Fellow Travelers
* A List of over 100 Political Publications
* A List of the Top 100 Radio Talk Show Hosts
* A List of Every Television News and Issue-oriented Talk Show
· Voting Records of each Senator and Congressman as compiled by 16 political groups
About the Author: Michael Crane graduated from Manhattanville College with a bachelor's degree in economics and attended the University of Michigan's Graduate School of Economics where he further developed his statistical skills. Mr. Crane was a research director for a marketing firm before politics attracted his attention. Because of his 20-year interest in all things political, he decided America needed "The Political Junkie Handbook" after noting the American public's ignorance of their government from Jay Leno's "man on the street" interviews and from disturbing public opinion polls.
Mr. Crane is an entrepreneur living and working in New York City.
