Most important books: Thomas Frank

Thomas Frank is the author of What' s the Matter With Kansas?, which examined why people seem to vote against their economic interests, and the recently published The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule.

He told Newsweek about his five most important books. One title on the list:
"Anti-Intellectualism in American Life" by Richard Hofstadter.

Every battle of our culture wars is just a footnote to this book.
