Editorial Reviews

Mary Carroll
The Progressive Policy Institute's centrist vision of the "Age of Clinton," "Mandate for Change", reached "bookstores" sooner, but 1,200-page manuscript copies of "Changing America" were airlifted to "Little Rock" the day after the election. The rival transition volumes share two contributors (Rob Shapiro and Elaine Kamarck, both of PPI), but "Changing America" follows the agency-by-agency format set by the Heritage Foundation's 1980 "Mandate for Leadership", and generally offers more progressive (i.e., "liberal") answers to the nation's ills. The Citizens Transition Project has attracted "name" contributors, among them Shapiro, James Galbraith, Jeff Faux, and Bob Kuttner on economic policy; Sandy Berger, Aryeh Neier and Holly Burkhalter, John Tepper Marlin, and Michael Klare on foreign and defense policy; Lee Brown, Mark Gitenstein, and Mathea Falco on justice issues; Kamarck, Marian Wright Edelman, Robert Greenstein, and Estelle Rogers on social policy; Ralph Nader on regulation; Hunter and Amory Lovins on energy policy; Henry Louis Gates, Jr., on race and class; and Ellen Miller and Phil Stern on campaign finance reform. "Changing America" provides nourishing food for concerned citizens' thought--and a challenging set of standards against which the performance of President Clinton and his new administration can and should be judged.
