Thomas Frank

Founding Editor, The Baffler; Author, What's the Matter with Kansas and The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Ruined Government, Enriched Themselves, and Beggared the Nation

Following in the steps of H.L. Mencken, Frank offers a candid look at what he sees as the missteps and corruption that have confronted our country since the earliest days of the Republican revolution. From political scandal to the mortgage meltdown, Frank argues that preserving the free market as the logic of the state has led to misgovernment. It has recently been announced that Frank is planning to revive his iconic publication, The Baffler.
