Abstract:

This book argues that the only way for the United States to once again honor its great historic values - above all equality, liberty, and meaningful democracy - is to build forrward to achieve what amounts to systemic change ... This [book] offer an introduction to critical ideas about what it takes to sustain equality, liberty, and democracy - the kind of ideas that in recent years modern political and economic theorists have been developing and refining in their books and articles.-Pref. This book takes us outside the confines of orthodox thinking, imagines a new way of living together, and then brings that vision back into reality with a set of eminently practical ideas that promise a truly democratic society.-Back cover.
