Summary
  • In the 1970s, homeowners in communities throughout the United States got together to protest their local property taxes. Isaac William Martin advances the provocative new argument that the property tax revolt was not a conservative backlash against big government, but instead a defensive movement for government protection from the market. The tax privilege that the tax rebels were defending was in fact one of the largest governmental social programs in the postwar era
  • While the movement to defend homeowners' tax breaks drew much of its inspiration-and many of its early leaders-from the progressive movement for welfare rights, politicians on both sides of the aisle quickly learned that supporting big tax cuts was good politics. In time, American political institutions and protesters' strategic choices ultimately channeled the movement toward the kind of tax relief favored by the political Right, with dramatic consequences for American politics today
