Tip of the Spear: A Unique Perspective on Pennsylvania's Political Revolution

Forside
Raintree Books, 2007 - 434 sider
In the summer of 2005, Pennsylvania state government revealed its seedy underbelly when the General Assembly gave itself and others an unconstitutional middle-of-the-night pay raise.In response, the people of the Commonwealth awoke from a long slumber and rose up in defiance of the Political Class. They made history - and the reverberations are still being felt. Things may never be the same again in the Keystone State.Beneath the battles of right versus left, liberal versus conservative and Republican versus Democrat, the Establishment strained to maintain power and continuity. Traditional political ideologies took a back seat as the very fabric of the Political Class was torn apart.In 2005-2006, Pennsylvanians got a taste of what happens when the ivory-towered crowd is running scared. But what we read in the papers and see on television is never the whole story. Follow the journey of one individual who just happened to get caught in the middle of it all and observed it from a unique perspective?
