THE POLITICIANS AND THE EGALITARIANS The Hidden Story of American Politics

by | Read by Joe Barrett

History • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

As Wilentz examines the value of politics in securing the American democratic dream, narrator Joe Barrett gives life to what could have been a tedious historical discourse. His pace is good, and he slows slightly when making vital points. Varying his tone to suit the material, he keeps the sometimes highly detailed text from becoming dry. Overall, Barrett delivers the narrative the way many students might wish their instructors delivered lectures. He also adopts hints of accents to indicate direct quotes, with uneven success, but this hardly detracts from his overall effectiveness. The author's defense of politicians is especially insightful in today's anti-Washington climate. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2016]
