Description


From David Brat, the college professor who made political headlines when he unseated Majority Leader Eric Cantor, comes his plan for restoring fiscal liberty for America.

Congressman David Brat's odds-defying win against Eric Cantor -- a triumph of a modest $200,000 campaign fund against a $5 million war chest -- immediately brought David Brat, heretofore a liberal arts college economics professor, into the political limelight. Now, in his first book, American Underdog, Brat examines how we brought down the status quo by tapping into moral and economic lessons as old as our civilization and discusses how Washington can learn from history instead of ignoring it. A fighter for children, he illuminates how our current fiscal policies are selling their future, and outlines new ways to move forward with a conservative agenda that provides fairer treatment for all.

Praise For…


"American Underdog is an effort to redefine American identity from the viewpoint of Republican-Christian right and an interesting read. As the number of non-Christian Americans- other religions and atheists-goes up, Republican-Christian right feels its existence as a major religion is under threat and tries to become - sometimes violently - assertive. Republican politician David Brat has very carefully articulated the arguments of Republican-Christian right. This is a must-read book to understand politics of President Trump."—p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Helvetica}span.s1 {font-kerning: none}The Washington Review
