Editorial Reviews

Hakim Hasan
The enlightening essays in Someday We'll All Be Free are an interpretive collage of tragic events in American life that are redefining our debates about civil liberties and the unspoken expendability of the poor. Powell argues that the key to the future of American democracy is the willingness of Americans to assess their history and to reject rabid nationalism as a form of patriotism. He makes the point that freedom is measured by an evolving recognition of our shared humanity. Through this realization, problems such as poverty, natural disaster and terrorism can be addressed effectively.
