Lessons from the Iranian Revolution and the Iraq War ROBERT JERVIS

FOREWORD BY L AWRENCE MISHEL In Failure by Design, the Economic Policy Institute’s Josh Bivens takes a step back from the acclaimed State of Working America series, building on its wealth of data to relate a compelling narrative of the U.S. economy’s struggle to emerge from the Great Recession of 2008. Bivens explains the causes and impact on working Americans of the most catastrophic economic policy failure since the 1920s.

The Myth of Voter Fraud
“Minnite argues persuasively that instances of people fraudulently voting in the United States are rare. She makes a compelling case that the vast majority of non-legitimate registrations are innocent errors, that only a small number of individuals illegitimately registered actually cast ballots, and that only an even smaller number of these illegitimate ballots are counted. She writes engagingly and with a sense of humor. An important book.” —CHOICE
