From the back cover:
"This fight is our fight.
"The tail of America coming out of the Great Depression and not only surviving but actually transforming itself into an economic giant is the stuff of legend. But the part that gives me goose bumps is what we did with all that wealth: over several generations, our country built the greatest middle class the world had ever known.
"We built it ourselves, using our own hard work and the tools of government to open up more opportunities for millions of people. We used it all--tax policy, investments in public education, new infrastructure, support for research, rules that protected consumers and investors, antitrust laws--to promote and expand our middle class. The spectacular, shoot-off-the-fireworks fact is that we succeeded. Income growth was widespread, and the people who did most of the work--the 90 percent of America--also got most of the gains.
"But now, in a new century and a different time, that great middle class is on the ropes. All across the country, people are worried--worried and angry. And they are right to be angry, because this hard-won, ruggedly built, infinitely precious democracy of ours has been hijacked."
