Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union

David Swanson has stood at the forefront of citizens movements for a more just America. Popular blogger, and a leader of the antiwar and pro-impeachment movements, and a star progressive, Swanson's first book - Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union - is an assessment of how Bush/Cheney fundamentally altered the way our government works, inflated the powers of the executive, and deteriorated the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Daybreak is a citizen's guide to the long-term task of putting an end to the all-powerful executive, and reasserting our democracy. Major structural changes are needed. Here we have clear plans for how we may declare our rights, and truly set out for a new America.
