Publisher's Summary

Who is killing America? Is it really Donald Trump and a GOP filled with white supremacists? In a major new work of historical revisionism, Dinesh D’Souza makes the provocative case that Democrats are the ones killing America by turning it into a massive nanny state modeled on the Southern plantation system.  

This sweeping alternative history of the Democratic Party goes back to its foundations in the antebellum South. The slaveholding elite devised the plantation as a means of organizing labor and political support. It was a mini-welfare state, a cradle-to-grave system that bred dependency and punished any urge to independence. This model impressed Northern Democrats, inspiring the political machines that traded government handouts for votes from ethnic immigrant blocs.  

Today's Democrats have expanded to a multiracial plantation of ghettos for blacks, barrios for Latinos, and reservations for Native Americans. Whites are the only holdouts resisting full dependency, and so they are blamed for the bigotry and racial exploitation that is actually perpetrated by the left.  

Death of a Nation's bracing alternative vision of American history explains the Democratic Party's dark past, reinterprets the roles of figures like Van Buren, FDR, and LBJ, and exposes the hidden truth that racism comes not from Trump or the conservative right but rather from Democrats and progressives on the left.

A great book, shining a light on a dark history.

I enjoyed the Fact Dinesh D'Souza took the time to read the book himself. He does a very good job of showing the similarities of President Abraham Lincoln, and President Donald Trump. As well as the similarites of Democratic stratergies to maintain the plantation in America up to this day.

Very informative.

I found Death of a Nation very informative and highly researched. There was much information I did not know. Unlike other D'Souza books, I liked hearing the author's voice.

Precise Historical Account Having Dramatic Flair

The precise historical account of the essence of "progressive" foundations of the Democratic Party is a MUST read for all fair minded Americans. It has taken an immigrant from India, Mr. D'Souza, to lay out the truth of the Democratic Party's past practices and precepts as inspiration for the overbearing nature of Big Government, Racism, and insidious domination of the indigenous, native-Americans (Indians) and Black Americans. I must view the Motion Picture as well as acquire the DVD of the movie. Americans should understand the racism of Democrat presidents, Woodrow Wilson and FDR. The tragedy of the 20th Century turns on the election of Democrats for not only the Presidency but also member of Congress.

Never Trump Conservatives Must Read/Hear/See

Listen to the history laid out and let the connections sink in. Look at today's media and identity politics and see the connections. Take your time with this and see the culture war and what we can do to succeed for ourselves and our posterity.

Very informative

I enjoyed the content of this book. It’s goes into great depth explaining the contradictions coming from the democrats. We as a nation need to put aside our
differences and come together for the betterment of future. A house divided will fall, it’s that simple.

Five Stars

Dinesh D’Souza shines the light on progressive lies and exposes the hypocrisy of the left with facts. The Democrat Party is the party of the slave plantation, white supremacy (Richard Spencer), Fascism (Antifa), and racism. Will President Trump unite this country as Lincoln once did? ‘Death of a Nation’ gives us hope.

The most important book of our time!

This book takes you on a journey through the real America. The road winds through the political, cultural and human history of our great nation. It is an expose of how America began and shaped itself into the culmination of our present day. Anyone listening with a critical open mind will decider through both the triumph and the tragedy our nation has experienced through its history, a remedy to become the truly great nation our forefathers had only imagined. America. What will you decide?
