Product Details


“In [this] short, bracing book, David Faris … argues that Democrats should immediately use every lever they have to gum up the works in Washington, to ensure they win full control of government in 2020.” THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“A bracing polemic … American democracy could disappear altogether within our own lifetimes. Every one who wants to avoid that catastrophe must read his book.​” ​THE GUARDIAN US

“The most detailed case against the Return to Normalcy—let’s call it the Normal Is Over side of the debate—is advanced by the political scientist David Faris in his new book.”POLITICO

“Political scientist David Faris makes a compelling case that court-packing — along with statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico and other reforms — amounts to a prerequisite for lasting progressive change.” JACOBIN

“Should be mandatory reading by every Dem leader.”DAILY KOS

“[Faris] advocates a number of astringent, constitutionally legal challenges to a system that has hardly served the American public, let alone Democrats, well… A worthy contribution to the ongoing American experiment.”BOOKLIST

“Blueprints to make sure that Republicans never force the rest of the country into their most nightmarish fantasies.” GQ

“There are more of us than there are of them, so let’s fight like it: resist Trump and embolden the Democrats. It’s Time to Fight Dirty is our roadmap to a fairer democracy and an America we want to live in. If we listen to David Faris, it’s a fight we can win.” —David Daley, author of Ratf**ked

“Go get the book. Read it for yourself. This is the playbook, this is what we need to do, this is how we draw the line.”THE BENJAMIN DIXON SHOW

“A playbook the left can use to get more power without having to change the Constitution, and they can do a lot.”  Ezra Klein, VOX
