This meeting: Deconstructing McCain
featuring The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter and
Free Ride by David Brock and Paul Waldman

Read one, read both, or just come along for a lively discussion! Feel free to bring additional relevant reading materials.

The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter:
Cliff Schecter tackles the real McCain, examining his political history and revealing his turn to staunch conservatism to be the political pandering of a cold, calculating and aggressive man with power on his mind. Schecter follows McCain through all his inflammatory flip-flopping and fist-throwing as he claws his way toward the White House.

Free Ride by David Brock and Paul Waldman:
What role does the media play in shaping politics? Brock and Waldman address this question in Free Ride by charting how the press has uniquely influenced the success of the so-called straight-talking maverick John McCain. Bonus: tabloid-like revelations of McCain's vicious temper and scandalous past!
