Overview

Taking Back America is a direct challenge to the Bush administration. This important collection of essays, drawn from the historic Take Back America Conference in Washington D.C. and the pages of The Nation, exposes the radical, reactionary scope of the Bush agenda and the damage that it will do if left unchecked. Included in Taking Back America are outstanding essays by leading figures within the progressive movement. Barbara Ehrenreich explores how working people can be empowered; William Greider analyzes Bush ambitions and their destructive potential; Ralph Neas of People for the American Way explains the war Bush is waging against the American people and their rights; Danny Goldberg describes how youth can be mobilized; Ben Barber and Tom Andrews challenge the destabilizing Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war, and Robert Borosage and Katrina vanden Heuvel lay out a progressive strategy for the future. Anchoring the collection is an electrifying address by Bill Moyers that places the current struggle into historic context, and shows how it is democracy itself that is at stake.
