Short Synopsis
From the author of The Second Amendment comes this compelling look at the long struggle to win voting rights for all citizens.

Full Synopsis
In The Second Amendment, Michael Waldman traces the ongoing argument on gun rights from the Bill of Rights to the current day. Now, in The Fight to Vote, Waldman takes a succinct and comprehensive look at an even more crucial struggle: the past and present effort to define and defend government based on "the consent of the governed." From the writing of the Constitution, and at every step along the way, as Americans sought the right, others have fought to stop them. The Fight to Vote, meticulously researched and thoroughly compelling, recounts the entire story, from the Founders' debates to gerrymandering and voter ID laws.

"Barrett becomes more oratory as he goes back into history, with key figures being quoted getting voices that give the feel of political speechmaking." ---AudioFile

"A timely contribution to the discussion of a crucial issue." ---Kirkus

"Michael Waldman's masterly history reminds us that 'We the People' can and must restore our experiment in Constitutional freedom." ---Taylor Branch, author of America in the King Years
