Forget the neoconservatives. As the Democrats retake Washington and progressives think they can pull the U.S. back from the brink, Stephen Marshall's up close and personal investigation finds that the biggest threat to Western democracy is the U.S. liberal elite.

In the tradition of Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson, Stephen Marshall, Sundance-award winning director and cofounder of Guerrilla News Network, hits the road and travels from the front lines of the Iraq War, through the wasteland of the former communist Eastern bloc, into a coke-dusted sex party of Britain's intellectual elite, and into the minds of America's most influential liberal figures.

Marshall recounts his meetings and conversations with Christopher Hitchens, Gore Vidal, David Horowitz, Lewis Lapham, John Avlon, the Economist's John Micklethwait, the Guardian's editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger and bestselling authors Naomi Klein, Todd Gitlin, Paul Berman and John Perkins.

He finds that American liberals have dumped the '60s era radicalism of their youth and become complicit in a complex game of bait-and-switch, selling the world a vision of liberal democracy in which they, in fact, no longer believe. Have liberals buckled under the pressure of America's declining fortunes and taken on the role of good cop to the conservatives' bad?
