Publisher's Summary

Who is killing America? Is it really Donald Trump and a GOP filled with white supremacists? In a major new work of historical revisionism, Dinesh D’Souza makes the provocative case that Democrats are the ones killing America by turning it into a massive nanny state modeled on the Southern plantation system.  

This sweeping alternative history of the Democratic Party goes back to its foundations in the antebellum South. The slaveholding elite devised the plantation as a means of organizing labor and political support. It was a mini-welfare state, a cradle-to-grave system that bred dependency and punished any urge to independence. This model impressed Northern Democrats, inspiring the political machines that traded government handouts for votes from ethnic immigrant blocs.  

Today's Democrats have expanded to a multiracial plantation of ghettos for blacks, barrios for Latinos, and reservations for Native Americans. Whites are the only holdouts resisting full dependency, and so they are blamed for the bigotry and racial exploitation that is actually perpetrated by the left.  

Death of a Nation's bracing alternative vision of American history explains the Democratic Party's dark past, reinterprets the roles of figures like Van Buren, FDR, and LBJ, and exposes the hidden truth that racism comes not from Trump or the conservative right but rather from Democrats and progressives on the left.

D'Souza is a Genius

It's no wonder President Trump recognized Dinesh as a powerful voice for the truth. Information contained in this book exposes the evil of our time. Brilliant.

A demanding but important read

D’Souza’s story and performance transcends the dense subject. I wish everyone could read it but fear only those with confirmation bias will ever get through it.

Very informative.

I found Death of a Nation very informative and highly researched. There was much information I did not know. Unlike other D'Souza books, I liked hearing the author's voice.

A great book, shining a light on a dark history.

I enjoyed the Fact Dinesh D'Souza took the time to read the book himself. He does a very good job of showing the similarities of President Abraham Lincoln, and President Donald Trump. As well as the similarites of Democratic stratergies to maintain the plantation in America up to this day.

The very sad truth of our Nation! 💔

As with all his books this is a very accurate account of all the dirty little secrets that have all but been written out of our history. one can only imagine how great our Nation would be if our supposed ruling class put as much effort into doing what is right for We The People as they do their own interests!

Brilliant mind!

Dinesh D’Souza is one of the most brilliant minds of our time. He backs up his arguments with facts, not emotions. He provides a history that all Americans should know and understand, lest it be lost to the annals of history. As an immigrant himself, he gets this. It’s also great to listen to a book read by the author!

Five Stars

Dinesh D’Souza shines the light on progressive lies and exposes the hypocrisy of the left with facts. The Democrat Party is the party of the slave plantation, white supremacy (Richard Spencer), Fascism (Antifa), and racism. Will President Trump unite this country as Lincoln once did? ‘Death of a Nation’ gives us hope.

Excellent... Everything you expect from D'Souza

The movie never played near us when it was in theaters and we really wanted to see it so I decided to read the book before viewing the film now that it's on Netflix. We've read other books and seen other films by D'Souza but we're particularly interested in this one with the polarization of the two parties in the 2016 election. The history of the two parties and the plantation politics of the Democratic Party is a fascinating topic. The deniability of progressive liberals has always been puzzling. As a conservative in the South and having been called racist my entire life by non-southerners, I particularly appreciate this big picture perspective. Thank you, Dinesh, and please keep speaking your truth because it is America's truth and you have an audience who needs to hear it, wanted or not.

Precise Historical Account Having Dramatic Flair

The precise historical account of the essence of "progressive" foundations of the Democratic Party is a MUST read for all fair minded Americans. It has taken an immigrant from India, Mr. D'Souza, to lay out the truth of the Democratic Party's past practices and precepts as inspiration for the overbearing nature of Big Government, Racism, and insidious domination of the indigenous, native-Americans (Indians) and Black Americans. I must view the Motion Picture as well as acquire the DVD of the movie. Americans should understand the racism of Democrat presidents, Woodrow Wilson and FDR. The tragedy of the 20th Century turns on the election of Democrats for not only the Presidency but also member of Congress.

Total right wing hack

If you have right leanings you might enjoy the book....if you are middle of the road....you’ll likely cast a jaundice view.....if left, you will probably vomit.
