Why would an American president bow down to world leaders?   Why is it easy for politicians to stoke hatred for rich, fat-cat CEOs? And why do so many nations around the world hate America, the world’s lone superpower?  read more

David versus Goliath, the American Revolutionaries, “The Little Engine That Could,’ Team USA’s ‘Miracle on Ice,” the Star Wars Rebel Alliance, Rocky Balboa, American Idol, the Jamaican bobsled team, and the meek inheriting the Earth.

Everyone loves an underdog.  Why is that?

Why do we stand up for “the little guy?” Why do we raise our fists to “fight the power?” And what does this mean to America-the world’s lone superpower?

The answer can be found in Underdogma, which is the belief that those who have less power (underdogs) are good-because they have less power, and that those who have more power (overdogs) are bad-because they have more power.

Underdogma is the first in-depth study to uncover why we love underdogs and hate overdogs by examining our love/hate relationship with power throughout our history, our culture, our politics-and in the headlines that shape our world today.

Underdogma reveals how a new Axis of Power-between the power haves and power have-nots-has superseded traditional notions of Left and Right to become the central pivot point for the defining issues of our time, including the global financial crisis, the presidency of Barack Obama, the conflicts in the Middle East, the environmental movement, anti-Americanism, the new anti-Semitism, global terrorism, and the rise of China to name a few. This book also reveals the effect of Underdogma in our personal lives, from the delight we take in the misfortune of celebrities to small-town protests over big box stores to our love for American Idol and our scorn for our rich neighbors.

And Underdogma gives you a way to fight back against those who seek to trash-and seize-American power.

“Michael Prell’s book, Underdogma, explains in detail how the Left masks anti-Americanism and anti-Western sentiment behind the American tradition of rooting for the underdog and how we can fight back against their rhetoric by reviving the American spirit of our founding fathers that transformed us from the ‘underdog’ to the greatest country on earth.” - NEWT GINGRICH, Former House Speaker, New York Times Best-Selling Author  read more reviews
