Overview

'America is in transition, even if the executive branch is not. Belying the comfortable metaphor of George Bush's 'friendly takeover' of the Reagan Administration, great changes are occurring both in our country and world. For George Bush, George Mitchell and Jim Wright-our national leaders as we enter the 1990s-the era of avoidance is over. In America's Transition: Blueprints for the 1990s, 58 authors in 38 chapters offer their best ideas to the new President and Congress. This volume demonstrates that the progressive mainstream has a governing agenda based on five preeminent values-strong democracy, demand-side growth, children first, post-cold war peace and respect for law-values as much at odds with prevailing conservative orthodoxy as Copernicus was from Ptolemy.'-from Mark Green's Introduction Distributed by arrangement with the Democracy Project.
