David Faris signing his book 'It's Time to Fight Dirty'
4/17/2018

In a pitch to average Americans, Roosevelt University Associate Professor of Political Science David Faris takes aim in a bold book released this week at much that is held dear in U.S. politics.

Calling for changes both to and outside of the U.S. Constitution, adding more U.S. Supreme Court justices and eliminating lifetime tenure of the federal judiciary, It’s Time to Fight Dirty: How Democrats Can Build a Lasting Majority in American Politics is a blueprint for progressive change.

A regular columnist for The Week Magazine where his pieces have been featured in links by the New York Times, Faris starts from the premise in the book that the political Right is out to destroy the political Left.
