   schema:reviewBody ""This book reveals how campaigns by Nader and other third-party progressives have been misguided. Unlike most other democracies, specific principles built into the American electoral system doom third-party candidacies for the presidency and other offices. Domhoff's narrative explains why this is the case. He then presents a new way for progressives to enter the political arena without compromising their basic values or their emphasis on participation in social movements. He shows how "planning through the market" holds more potential for freedom and fairness than centrally planned economies. He also shows how progressives can redefine "who is us" and "who is them" in a way that is more inclusive, allowing people across the class spectrum to support a renewed egalitarian vision."--Jacket." ;
