NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 28, 2016) - Harvard Law Professor, Emeritus, Alan Dershowitz's insightful commentary on the 2016 presidential elections, Electile Dysfunction: A Guide for Unaroused Voters, will be released by RosettaBooks in hard cover and as an e-book on September 6. The author will be available for interviews starting on the publication date.
"The idea for the book came to me when friends from both parties complained that they weren't excited by either presidential candidate," said Dershowitz. "While the title is whimsical, the subject matter is serious and addresses the widespread feeling of impotence among the electorate at a time when they should be passionately inspired."
According to Dershowitz, the book offers perspective on how we've arrived at this point in the political process and settled for candidates who don't turn on so many voters. "The critical takeaway is that this may be the most important election in modern history because of the instability in the country and around the world. The book provides guidance for those who are frustrated by the choices with which they've been presented."
"We're delighted to publish a third title by Alan Dershowitz," said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks. "Electile Dysfunction, as his two earlier RosettaBooks, The Case Against the Iran Deal (2015), and Terror Tunnels (2014), is hard-hitting and controversial -- enabling readers to draw smarter conclusions about the complex challenges we face in today's world."
Professor, Emeritus, Alan M. Dershowitz, the former Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard, was described by Newsweek as "the nation's most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights." He has published more than 1000 articles in magazines, newspapers, journals and blogs such as The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Harvard Law Review, the Yale Law Journal, Huffington Post, Newsmax, Jerusalem Post and Ha'aretz.
Professor Dershowitz is the author of 35 fiction and non-fiction works with a worldwide audience, including The New York Times #1 bestseller Chutzpah and five other national bestsellers. His autobiography, Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law, was published in October 2013 by Crown, a division of Random House. Earlier titles include the bestselling The Case For Israel; The Case For Peace; Blasphemy; Preemption; Finding Jefferson; and Shouting Fire.
