About the Book by Anand Giridharadas titled “The Persuaders: At the Front Lines of the Fight for Heart, Minds, and Democracy”

From a New York Times review by Jennifer Szalai of the book by Anand Giridharadas titled “The Persuaders”:

If you take a look at what passes for political discourse nowadays, it’s hard not to succumb to fatalism. These are fractious, polarized times. Americans have made up their minds and there’s no use trying to change them. Disagreement is existential. Politics is an extension of war by other means.
