Product Details


“David Brock’s new book Stench captures one of the most consequential elements of the crisis facing the American Republic: a Supreme Court fully invested in an activist approach to the law and the Constitution. He shows clearly how the Long March of the Federalist Society and conservative activists was designed as a multi-decade program to deliver political, not simply legal, outcomes for the American right. The right campaigned for decades against “activist courts” and “legislating from the bench” but it turned out that was their real plan all along. Stench is a road map on how they did it, what comes next, and the consequences for us all.” –Rick Wilson

“As David Brock shows in this deeply researched, compelling account, far-right fanatics backed by corporate interests schemed for more than 40 years to capture America’s judiciary with far-reaching consequences for women’s reproductive health, voting rights, sensible gun laws and a clean environment. But the battle isn’t over. The courts are on the ballot again in November. At stake are life-time appointments of ever younger extremists, from the Supreme Court on down, who will lock in for generations their radical, distorted and deeply unpopular views of the Constitution. Brock sounds the alarm. Don’t say you weren’t warned.” —James Carville
“David Brock knows the right-wing influence machine better than anybody except those who are a part of it now—meaning Leonard Leo, Mitch McConnell, Sam Alito, Ginni and Clarence Thomas, and all their allies. Stench, his new book, laces deep research with his own history, relationships, and longtime insider perspective to provide a devastating and chilling picture of the rise and dominance of the right-wing takeover of the Supreme Court, and its consequences, now and for the future. Read it and weep—and buckle down to fight back.” —Norman Ornstein, emeritus scholar, American Enterprise Institute
