New York Times reporter Kate Zernike has written the definitive history of the tea party movement. She chronicles the rise of the movement, the key players involved, and how it became a historic force for change in America. Her book is called, "Boiling Mad: Inside Tea Party America," and it can be purchased on Amazon here.
I spent hours meeting with Kate and speaking with her on the phone for this book. She is a diligent, observant reporter with excellent writing skills and a keen mind. The book is definitely worth a read if you want to know the inside story of how the tea party movement came to be.
