Kevin Phillips - Swimming with the Sharks: The U.S. Economy
Kevin Phillips was chief political analyst for the 1968 Republican presidential campaign, which culminated in the victory of Richard Nixon. Phillips also was partly responsible for the design of the Republican "Southern strategy," which transformed the once Democratic South into a Republican stronghold. In 1969 he wrote "The Emerging
Republican Majority." His politics have evolved over the ensuing decades. He is the author of many books including "American Theocracy" and "Bad Money."
