"Donald Trump's presidency is the culmination of pathological tendencies in American--mainly Republican--politics, according to this furious broadside... a probing, sophisticated, very readable discussion of constitutional flaws and economic and ideological antagonisms, one that will give readers a deeper understanding of America's political rot."--Publishers Weekly
"Sargent has produced a clear, insightful account of our current condition, informed by impressive immersion in the best work of political scientists as well as investigative journalists...An Uncivil War merits wide readership."--Washington Post
"Sargent's analysis of these issues is refreshingly fair-minded [and] offers some useful suggestions. That will not only get us through the Trumpocalypse, it will get us to a better place than we were before."--Progressive Magazine
"The author's explanation is crystal-clear, if alarming... a solid appeal to small-r republican virtues and an altogether readable polemic."--Kirkus Reviews
"A passionate and articulate voice for progressive politics and policies...This important book draws on all [Sargent] has learned and written about, with a deep dive into the research on American democracy, to look at where we have gone wrong and what we can do to fix it."--Norman J. Ornstein, co-author of It's Even Worse Than It Looks and One Nation After Trump
"Greg Sargent has established himself as one of the shrewdest and most important progressive writers of the Trump era. In An Uncivil War, he lucidly diagnoses the problems of American democracy that facilitated Trump's rise and describes our recent past to paint a portrait of a better future."--E.J. Dionne Jr., co-author of One Nation After Trump
"Greg Sargent is one of the best political journalists in the country today. In his must-read new book An Uncivil War he writes powerfully about the many threats facing democracy in the Trump era and why every American should care. A timely, important, compelling read."--Ari Berman, senior reporter at Mother Jones and author of Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America
"Greg Sargent is one of the sharpest-eyed observers of contemporary American politics. By deftly weaving together his own reporting and the most up-to date political science research, he exposes the dismal roots of our current moment."--Daniel Ziblatt, co-author of How Democracies Die
