Former Detroit U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade, who teaches law at the University of Michigan and is a commentator on MSNBC, is coming out with a new book titled: "Attack from Within: How Disinformation Is Sabotaging America."

The book, due out next February, is described this way on Amazon:

An urgent, comprehensive explanation of the ways disinformation is impacting democracy, and practical solutions that can be pursued to strengthen the public, media, and truth-based politics

MSNBC's legal expert breaks down the ways disinformation has become a tool to drive voters to extremes, disempower our legal structures, and consolidate power in the hands of the few.

In Attack from Within, legal scholar and analyst Barbara McQuade, shows us how to identify the ways disinformation is seeping into all facets of our society and how we can fight against it. 

Former Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. is quoted on the Amazon page as saying:

"One of the most acute observers of our time shares . . . a compelling work about a challenge that—left unexamined and left unchecked—could undermine our democracy." 

McQuade worked for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit from 1998 to 2017. She served as U.S. Attorney in that office from 2010 to 2017 under President Obama. She was replaced after Donald Trump took office.
