Burning at the Grassroots: Inside the Dean Machine

dean book cover

This book was written after the author worked as a volunteer in Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign.  It describes the author’s experience, analyzes the candidate and the campaign, and predicts how the Dean campaign might affect future politics.  The author does not anticipate Anthony Weiner’s groundbreaking use of social media.

Like Howard Dean, this book has plummeted into obscurity. The book is out of print, but can be ordered directly from the author at dunnandj@yahoo.com.  He is sick of seeing extra copies on his bookshelf, taunting him.
