Books by Thomas Frank

Thomas Frank is the author of two important books about U.S. politics.

The Wrecking Crew describes the havoc that conservative and religious-right Republicans wreaked in the U.S. federal government.

Frank’s book, “What’s the Matter with Kansas? describes how Kansas went from a radical state that valued individuality and nonconformity to a hard-boiled, conservative state. It has been made into a movie. which Roger Ebert called one of the top ten documentaries in 2009. It will be opening around March.

And then there’s One Market Under God, about the weird economic rhetoric of the 1990s, and The Conquest of Cool, about economic co-option.
