Editorial Reviews

Mel Hurtig
"America has proven unable to alter its own destructive course. The rest of the world must play a role in reining in the superpower's excesses. Roszak shows us why and how."
Mel Hurtig, founder, Council of Canadians, author of Rushing to Armageddon

"Theodore Roszak is one of the nation's boldest and most eloquent social critics.This book is an alarm bell intended to awaken us to the long-term dangers of our present course. We must all listen to Roszak's message if we are to survive as a decent society at one with the world."
Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States
