Must-Read Books on the GOP and the One Percent


My new feature on how the Republican party became the Party of the One Percent, builds on the work of many outstanding journalists and academics, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude. 

Anyone looking to deepen their understanding of the ways in which GOP-driven policy has aggravated income inequality in this country should begin with these masterful books: 

'Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich — and Cheat Everybody Else' By David Cay Johnston

'Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer — and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class' By Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson

• 'Death by a Thousand Cuts: The Fight over Taxing Inherited Wealth' By Michael J. Graetz and Ian Shapiro 

• 'The Price of Loyalty: George W. Bush, the White House, and the Education of Paul O'Neill' By Ron Suskind

• 'Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency' By Barton Gellman
