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.

Important read

All Americans whether politically minded or not needs to read this book. Too much important content here to comment on but the continued theme of the Democrat party being the party of lies, deception, racism, socialism, greed etc ... is damning. Some Republicans have and continue to be a part of this too. Great work again by Dinesh. Well done. What an American treasure you are. When are you coming to visit Australia? :)

No more hyphens

D’Souza has a way of communicating politics that this country boy understands.....”he puts the hay down where the goats can get it”.
His story is proof that the American dream is alive and well.
My pet peeve is the use of hyphens in identity politics....what about just plain old American!
The history lesson in this book needs to be taught early and often in our schools.

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.

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.

Read by Author

I really enjoyed the fact the book was read by the Author. You can tell he has put a lot of research into this book. Not only is he an immigrate; but an American who clearly loves America. There is tons of history packed into this book. You will need to read/listen to it over and over again to catch it all...Maybe... This should be a must read to ALL high school graduates.

Excellent... Everything you expect from D'Souza

The movie never played near us when it was in theaters and we really wanted to see it so I decided to read the book before viewing the film now that it's on Netflix. We've read other books and seen other films by D'Souza but we're particularly interested in this one with the polarization of the two parties in the 2016 election. The history of the two parties and the plantation politics of the Democratic Party is a fascinating topic. The deniability of progressive liberals has always been puzzling. As a conservative in the South and having been called racist my entire life by non-southerners, I particularly appreciate this big picture perspective. Thank you, Dinesh, and please keep speaking your truth because it is America's truth and you have an audience who needs to hear it, wanted or not.

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.

EYE OPENING

Loved it, it was compelling and terrifying at the same time. How do you warn a busload of people they are headed for a cliff when they won't listen and berate you for telling them?

Very eye opening with factual backup.

I enjoy this and there's a lot that mainstream media is not reporting that is clearly evident based on the facts revealed in this book. I recommended as a good listen to anybody the chooses to get all the facts and base their own opinion on the total sum, not just what is reported in the mainstream
