Publisher's Summary

Through his nightly CNN show Lou Dobbs Tonight, his syndicated radio program, and his monthly magazine column, Lou Dobbs has become one of America's most visible, popular, and respected voices on business and financial matters. Now, with War on the Middle Class, Dobbs takes an impassioned and rousing stance on the all-out class war that is turning the American dream into a nightmare.

The middle class has never been so vulnerable. Its every feature is under assault by politicians and the lobbyists who court them, corporations that send jobs overseas, and a media that relies on sensationalism instead of facts when reporting the news.

In a sweeping analysis, Dobbs looks at every aspect of the decline of the middle class, from a lack of political representation to America's corrupt health-care system. He demonstrates that the gap between America's newest haves and have-nots is not merely financial, but instead involves the erosion of education, employment, government, and community. Dobbs proposes a series of measures to resolve each issue and incite people, whose future is being mortgaged to benefit a powerful few, to preserve their rights and dreams.

War on the Middle Class is provocative, incendiary, and bound to be widely discussed; it's the perfect book to establish the terms of debate for future elections.

What the Critics Say

"Agree with him or not, Dobbs remains a refreshingly bold thinker who refuses to be intellectually pigeonholed." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Lou Has Got It Mostly Right !"

    This review is admittedly partisan because I am a big Lou Dobbs fan, one of the few media pundits that dare to speak truth to a corrupt and broken system.

    This is one of the most inspiring works that I have read in years. Lou has his own ideas about what it will take to restore the meaning of "We The People" to our government. However. he does not hesitate to promote the work of others who have ignored the attacks of special interest groups and implemented programs that have addressed some of our most horrific problems.

    Lou concentrates solely on national issues and there is no discussion of any of our current foreign military adventures. He does not blame either of the two majority political parties for the current problems but he does point out that the use of partisan wedge issues by both parties has blocked any real debate on key problems. Primarily, the corruption of special interest money on all branches of our government is the over whelming factor.

    An inspiring 4 1/2 hour program that only Lou could do !

    A much needed book that should be read by ALL Americans (esp. the middle class)!!! Lou Dobbs should have really been running for the Presidency.

    "As pointless as his tv show"

    If you enjoy his tv show you will enjoy this book. I didn't enjoy either.

    "OMG end of the world"

    The author just goes on and on and on about things that are completely out of the middle-classes control. People better their lives every day, just know that and dont buy this book.
