Our Spring '05 book was "Don't Think of an Elephant: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate--The Essential Guide for Progressives" by George Lakoff.

Author George Lakoff explains how conservatives think, and how to counter their arguments.

Lakoff also breaks down the ways in which conservatives have framed the issues, and provides examples of how progressives can reframe them.
