Abstract:

[In this book, the author] presents his own ... examination of what has gone wrong in America - a critique ... balanced by an enduring faith in the progressive promise of the nation. Drawing on the lessons of his ... career, as well as on those of history itself, [the author] sounds the tocsin with a warning that the soul of democracy is dying in America, replaced increasingly by government of, by, and for a corporate ruling class. Whether reflecting on mega-media mergers that contribute to the replacement of truth-seeking with infotainment, corporate scandals that highlight the vast and growing distance between rich and poor, or political policies that have substituted casual belligerence for a careful tending to justice, [this book] seeks to return the conversation of democracy back to its most fundamental questions.-Dust jacket.
