PARALLEL BIG EXPLANATION PAGE

This book was fnished in May 2018. The full name of the book is "Republicans, Democrats,Conservatives, and Liberals". It is as much about how Democrats are not Liberals and Republicans are not Conservatives as it is about Democrats and Republicans. This book started as an essay and got out of control. Some of the chapters are available also through my page on political essays. The best way to get an idea of the book is to take the list below as a table of contents, and then read the first 5 pages or so of the first chapter. Chapters that begin with # are optional but still recommended. Chapters average about 20 pages each. You can read each chapter fairly independently. I suppose many people will wish to read only the chapter on Democrats or on Republicans, or both. If you read one, I hope you read the other. I am equally harsh on both. If you read one, you should read the related background, especially the chapters on Liberals, Conservatives, and history. The "text" view depends on your local browser and text reader.
