"A luminously intelligent and quietly passionate polemic that deserves to alter the terms of American political debate."-- "New York Times Book Review"

"A book destined to become a classic in American political history."-- "Newsday"
Praise for E.J. Dionne Jr.:

"The best new liberal rethinkers, like Dionne . . . are fair and sophisticated about American conservatism.--David Brooks "the Weekly Standard"

"Why the Right Went Wrong is an essential read for those looking to understand how the conservative movement has become what it is today."-- "Huffington Post"
"[Dionne] remains one of the best political writers in America. . . . The book makes the case that contemporary conservativism must reverse course on a calamitous step that conservativism took 50 years ago. There are 16 persuasive chapters, brimming with good analysis in Why The Right Went Wrong, that argue to this point. This is a book with great insight, attention to detail and beautifully researched."-- "The Buffalo News"
"Dionne is right that America needs an intelligent conservative party, and the insights of this decent man who, as an award-winning journalist for The Washington Post, has unique access to politicians make wonderful reading."-- "The Washington Post"
"So what went wrong? The questions itself might seem provocative. The fact that Dionne is an avowedly liberal columnist for The Washington Post would redouble suspicion. Yet it would be hard to find a more sympathetic non-conservative to attempt an answer. He has covered every election since the 1970s and is liked and trusted by Republicans and Democrats....[Dionne's] is a tempered book--suffused with the kind of moderation and balance he believes Republicans desperately need."-- "Financial Times"
"Talk about perfect timing. . . . an account of the GOP's internal tension. . . . Why the Right Went Wrong is particularly interesting in its assessment of the past decade. . . . The book is up to the moment."-- "The Christian Science Monitor"
"To understand why the current conservative crackup so confounds and confuses the Republican establishment, you have to recognize that the party is facing two separate revolts taking place simultaneously: one led by Ted Cruz, the other by Donald Trump. The first is well described by E.J. Dionne in his important new book, Why the Right Went Wrong."--Fareed Zakaria "The Washington Post"

"A richly researched tour of history . . . strong enough, serious enough and grounded enough to challenge those on the other side of the divide."-- "The Washington Post"


"A deeply personal and searchingly intelligent reflection on the noble history, recent travails and likely prospects of American liberalism."-- "The New York Times"

In Why the Right Went Wrong, one of America's most respected journalists has produced a thoroughly documented, eminently readable account of GOP conservatism up to the party's newest turn.-- "National Catholic Reporter"
