Answering Back by David Coates
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Answering Back" presents the conservative and liberal arguments on eight key policy issues: trickle-down economics, welfare, social security, health care, immigration control, religion, the war in Iraq, and economic prosperity. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, followed by conservative views and a point-by-point progressive response. Each stage of each argument is labeled for easy memorization, and the language used is deliberately jargon free, to make the material as accessible as possible. The sources of both conservative and progressive arguments (and their supporting evidence) are cited to open the door to further research. "Answering Back" aims to be a handbook of arguments, data, and sources that present today's key policy debates in an even-handed and accessible manner. This will be an essential tool for anyone interested in policy reform, party politics, and American politics.
