The Right Nation (ISBN 1594200203) is a book which charts the rise of the Republican Party in America since Barry Goldwater's defeat in 1964. It was written by two British journalists, John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge.
Anatomy, which discusses the way in which the Republican Party set about recovering from its near-catastrophic defeat in 1964, the role that think tanks play in the development of policy and political philosophy, particularly the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation , and the power of "footsoldiers" (motivated by cultural values) in winning elections.
Prophecy, which envisages two possible near-futures: why a Republican hegemony is (they argue) approaching, and reasons why this future may not come to pass.
Micklethwait and Wooldridge, as the U.S. editor and Washington correspondent for The Economist, are able to provide a disinterested perspective on their subject matter (compare Democracy in America, published over 150 years earlier).
