rilliant and engagingly written, Why Nations Fail answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poorwhy are nations divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine? Is it culture, the weather, geography? Or perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are? Simply, no. Instead, Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, as described in the book, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. While the south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutionswith no end in sight. Based on fifteen years of original research, Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including:
China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed and overwhelm the West? Are Americas best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted, to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority? What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson's breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions?

Why Nations Fail will change the way your students look atand understandthe world.
Why Nations Fail is a truly awesome book. Acemoglu and Robinson tackle one of the most important problems in the social sciencesa question that has bedeviled leading thinkers for centuriesand offer an answer that is brilliant in its simplicity and power. A wonderfully readable mix of history, political science, and economics, this book will change the way we think about economic development. Why Nations Fail is a must-read book. Steven Levitt, coauthor of Freakonomics

Excerpt from Why Nations Fail

This book is about the huge differences in incomes and standards of living that separate the rich countries of the world, such as the United States, Great Britain, and Germany, from the poor, such as those in sub-Saharan Africa, Central America, and South Asia. As we write this preface, North Africa and the Middle East have been shaken by the Arab Spring started by the so-called Jasmine Revolution, which was initially ignited by public outrage over the selfimmolation of a street vendor, Mohamed Bouazizi, on December 17, 2010. By January 14, 2011, President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who had ruled Tunisia since 1987, had stepped down, but far from abating, the revolutionary fervor against the rule of privileged elites in Tunisia was getting stronger and had already spread to the rest of the Middle East. Hosni Mubarak, who had ruled Egypt with a tight grip for almost thirty years, was ousted on February 11, 2011. The fates of the regimes in Bahrain, Libya, Syria, and Yemen are unknown as we complete this preface. The roots of discontent in these countries lie in their poverty. The average Egyptian has an income level of around 12 percent of the average citizen of the United States and can expect to live ten fewer years; 20 percent of the population is in dire poverty. Though these differences are significant, they are actually quite small compared with those between the United States and the poorest countries in the world, such as North Korea, Sierra Leone, and Zimbabwe, where well over half the population lives in poverty. Why is Egypt so much poorer than the United States? What are the constraints that keep Egyptians from becoming more prosperous? Is the poverty of Egypt immutable, or can it be eradicated? A natural way to start thinking about this is to look at what the Egyptians themselves are saying about the problems they face and why they rose up against the Mubarak regime. Noha Hamed, twenty-four, a worker at an advertising agency in Cairo, made her views clear as she demonstrated in Tahrir Square: We are suffering from corruption, oppression and bad education. We are living amid a corrupt system which has to change. Another in the square, Mosaab El Shami, twenty, a pharmacy student, concurred: I hope that by the end of this year we will have an elected government and that universal freedoms are applied and that we put an end to the corruption that has taken over this country. The protestors in Tahrir Square spoke with one voice about the corruption of the government, its inability to deliver public services, and the lack of equality of opportunity in their country. They particularly complained about repression and the absence of political rights. As Mohamed ElBaradei, former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, wrote on Twitter on January 13, 2011, Tunisia: repression + absence of social justice + denial of channels for peaceful change = a ticking bomb. Egyptians and Tunisians both saw their economic problems as being fundamentally caused by their lack of political rights. When the protestors started to formulate their demands more systematically, the first twelve immediate demands posted by Wael Khalil, the software engineer and blogger who emerged as one of the leaders of the Egyptian protest movement, were all focused on political change. Issues such as raising the minimum wage appeared only among the transitional demands that were to be implemented later. To Egyptians, the things that have held them back include an ineffective and corrupt state and a society where they cannot use their talent, ambition, ingenuity, and what education they can get. But they also recognize that the roots of these problems are political. All the economic impediments they face stem from the way political power in Egypt is exercised and monopolized by a narrow elite. This, they understand, is the first thing that has to change.

Culture, Politics, and Migration
Edited by Jaime Marroqun Arredondo, Adela Pineda Franco, and Magdalena Mieri
pen Borders to a Revolution investigates the Mexican Revolutions immediate as well as long-lasting effects on diplomacy, politics, intellectual thought, art, and popular culture. It assesses the Revolutions impact on U.S. political and economic interests in Mexico during crucial periods in history, and wonders about the allure of the Revolution for so many American intellectuals and artists since its outbreak. Open Borders to a Revolution inquires into the role of popular culture and the mass media in shaping the image of the Mexican Revolution, which became highly significant for the Americans left. The book also addresses the question of why this revolutionary image constituted a palliative for Americans troubles during certain periods of economic anxiety, and why its memory was reconfigured by Mexicans living in the United States for diverse political, socio-economic, or cultural reasons. Despite having divergent approaches and pertaining to different academic disciplines, the collaborators in this volume highlight the importance of culture not only as a differentiated intellectual endeavor but also as an important symbolic dimension of politics, and as the lived experience of the everyday. Many of these essays map out a political terrain for the study of culture, and question the conventional binary logic (north/south, self/other, center/borders) through which the U.S.-Mexico relations have been approached. The volume stresses the theoretical dimension of borders as a privileged locus of enunciation from where to unfold a critique of pristine national signs. It is organized in two sections, each one with a particular view of the concept of borders. The first section, Traveling Borders, deals with transnational cultural events, artistic works and collaborations, as well as political debates that have been rightly considered prime examples of the Mexican Revolution presence and relevance in the U.S. These essays inquire into those Mexican or American intellectuals traveling back and forth from their countries by virtue of the centripetal and centrifugal forces unleashed by the Revolution. The second section, Living Borders, explores specific borderland practices and events; it deals with particular subjects and experiences, those taking place in the fringes of nationhood. These perspectives challenge the conventional approaches to the U.S.-Mexico border and enable a better understanding of the Revolution.

A Message from the Editors

The iconic images and biographies of Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa have somewhat fixed the historical imagination of the Mexican Revolution inside both Mexico and the United States as a failed struggle of the Mexican peasant and working classes to achieve what the Zapatista Army motto so aptly synthesize: land and freedom. Without challenging the fundamental truth of this overarching narrative we decided that, after one hundred years of the beginning of the Mexican Revolution, it was necessary to recover and reevaluate the complex symbolic processes that shaped the Unites States perception, memory and imagination of the Mexican Revolution. Open Borders to a Revolution reminds its readers that the U.S.-Mexico border was a key historical scenario where some of the Revolutions major political, economic, social, and military developments took place. More importantly, it highlights the importance of as an important symbolic dimension of politics and as the lived experience of the everyday. It also questions the conventional binary logic through which U.S.-Mexico relations have been approached (north/south, self/other, center/borders). By challenging a clear-cut American imaginary of the Mexican Revolution, and foregrounding the experiences of borderland subjects, our book provides different models for a new conception of U.S.-Mexico history. It unveils the evident trans-nationality and cross-nationality of nationhood, and challenges the widely accepted imagined boundaries of modern Mexican and even American identities. Our students are always surprised and challenged by the trans-nationality of both Mexican and American identities. This book helps to understand the importance of borders to unveil the contradictions involved in the conventional American national discourse, which is still based on an unsustainable binary logic (the civilized American self against the Mexican other). Aside from the specificity of territorial frontiers, the notion of borders also involves social and cultural experiences, like the political aspects of territorial border control, the shifting realities of borders, and the imaginaries through which they have been experienced. Through a investigation of the historical processes, cultural enterprises, social, cultural, and political experiences that took place on the fringes of nationhood and shaped the American imagination of the Mexican Revolution, Open Borders privileges the perspectives of hybrid subjects, and challenges the binary logic of national histories and identities. It shows that the Mexican Revolution relevance in the U.S. is best understood as a complex network of living intersections that even today continue to unite and confront the two nations. We believe that only through such an approach is it possible to reclaim a place for the memory of this otherwise frozen Revolution. Jaime Marroqun Arredondo and Adela Pineda Franco

Excerpt from Shaping Our Nation

I was inspired by the picture painted by historian Walter McDougall in the first pages of his magisterial history of the United States from 1829 to 1877: He described that if you could be transported back in time four hundred years and view the world in 1600, you would find most of the concentrations of population very similar to todays. There were great population masses in Ming China and Mogul India, a Muslim world of many varieties and schisms, a western Europe of fertile farms and trading ports, and a Russia expanding from its Muscovite base. In the Western Hemisphere there were the vast populations of Aztecs and Incas in the Mesoamerican and South American cordillera ruled by a thin layer of Spanish soldiers and priests. But North America then was very different from today. It was not vacant, as the writer Charles C. Mann has informed us in his wonderful books 1491 and 1493; Indian farming and hunting civilizations of various degrees of advancement had developed there over centuries. But these civilizations had only the slightest of connections to the more advanced societies of Europe and Asia, and their peoples were soon to suffer from enormous depopulation due to diseases for which they had no immunity. In their place today, in vivid contrast with the years around 1600, is a nation with 5 percent of the worlds population that produces 25 percent of its economic product and deploys more than 50 percent of its military capacity, a nation in which only 1 percent of its current population claims ancestry from the peoples variously called American Indians or Native Americans. The peopling of the United States is one of the most important stories of the last five hundred years, a story of successive surges of migration, across the oceans and across the continent. It is often said that in the past quarter century America has become culturally diverse. But it was culturally diverse from its colonial beginnings, and each successive surge of migration has changed the cultural and ethnic and political balance of the country. Americans have learned not only to cope but even to prosper as a nation with cultural variety, but that diversity has also led to grave and seemingly irrepressible conflict. The history of American migrations is a story of surprises: few anticipated when these surges of migration would begin and even fewer predicted that they would abruptly end, as most did. That may be especially relevant, as this is written, for the vast Latino migration of the quarter century from 1982 to 2007 seems to have tapered off sharply, with net migration from Mexico apparently below zero, while internal migration sharply slowed with the onset of recession in 2007, as it did even more sharply in the economic depression of the 1930s. This apparent pause in American migrations, immigrant and internal, may provide an unusually good vantage point for looking back on the migrations of the past and trying to imagine the character and magnitude of the American migrations of the future.

Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement
By Sarah Erdreich


ne-third of all American women will have an abortion by the time they are 45, and most of those women are already m mothers. Yet, the topic remains taboo. In this provocative book on th the heels of the Planned Parenthood controversy, Sarah Erdreich pr presents the antidote to the usual abortion debates. Inextricably connected to issues of autonomy, privacy, and In sexuality, the abortion debate remains home base for the culture se wars in America. Yet, there is more common ground than meets w the eye in favor of choice. Generation Roe delves into phenomena th su such as abortion-recovery counseling, crisis pregnancy ce centers, and the infamous anti-choice black children are an en endangered species billboards. It tells the stories of those who risk th their lives to pursue careers in this stigmatized field, and it outlines th the legislative battles that are being waged against abortion rights al all over the country. With an inspiring spirit and a forward-looking ap approach, Erdreich holds abortion up as a moral and fundamental hu human right.
I several sagaciously researched essays, Erdreich presents some In of the voices of women who choose abortion and why.

E Each generation experiences the battles for reproductive choice uniquely. Sarah Erdreich digs into our current terrainone of crisis pregnancy centers, the lulling effect of Roe, and the introduction of a new cadre of young activists onlineto illustrate the morality and urgency that animate the right to abortion. Jennifer Baumgardner, author of Manifesta and Abortion & Life Sarah Erdreich zeroes in on the central paradox of abortion in America: One in three women will have at least one abortion by menopause, but the anti-choice movement is scoring victory after victory. Stigma and shameand, let's not forget, fear of antichoice violencekeep too many women from speaking out even as their rights are whittled away. Can the young activists of Generation Roe revitalize the pro-choice movement? If you want to know what theyre thinking, this book is a great place to begin. Katha Pollitt

A Message from the Author

In the spring of 2008, I was living in Washington, D.C., and working as a freelance editor. I enjoyed the work, but missed having someone besides my dog to talk with during the day. So when I came across a job posting for part-time work on the National Abortion Federations hotline, I jumped at the opportunity. I had never worked in the reproductive rights field, but I had always believed that women should have the right to choose: I grew up in a politically liberal town (Ann Arbor) in a politically liberal family, where I took lots of rights for granted. And I thought that I knew plenty about abortion before I began working on the NAF hotline: the legendary court cases, the anti-choice violence, the reasons that a woman would make this choice. But working on the hotline was a real eye-opener. Every day, I heard from women of all racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds that were unable to access a legal medical service because of their income, their lack of reliable transportation, or the restrictions their state placed on abortion care. I ran across an article in The New York Times titled Where to Pass the Torch. The article focused on the number of abortion providers, clinic directors, and activists who were approaching retirement age. Who were take their place, the article asked; were there enough younger pro-choice activists to fill the void? I read that article, and realized that I was surrounded by young women and men in their 20s and 30s, who had grown up with legal abortion, and wanted nothing more than to make this their lifes work. I decided that their voices deserved to be heard, that the future of the movement was in my hands as much as anyone elses, and that a book needed to be written about it. To make Generation Roe a unique perspective on the current pro-choice landscape and what the future holds, I interwove the young with the old, because the movement and the moment are ripe for both: the voices of these young activists, along with their peers in medical and law school, mixed with the stories of clinic directors and providers that have been working in the field for decades. These experiences appear alongside detailed research about abortion provision, legal history, and the intricacies of state law. Just as the laws and history provide context for how abortion has become such a controversial issue, the personal stories make a compelling case for why access is still a fight. The women and men just entering the field also offer an often-overlooked perspective on how reproductive rights are part of a larger social-justice framework. My book explains how access to contraception and comprehensive reproductive health care are issues that affect men as well as women, and how being able to control ones reproductive choices affects other choices, from education to relationships to career opportunities. It covers the messaging of the anti-choice movement, the failures of mainstream reproductive rights organizations, and the many ways that our culture stigmatizes abortion and the women that choose this procedure. I am thrilled that this book is being included in an academic catalogue, because I wrote it with college students in mind. In many instances, the people profiled in Generation Roe are their peers; they are discussing topics that are a natural fit for university classrooms. Five years after making this issue my mission, Im still spending too much time alone talking to my dog, but we have a lot more to talk about: forty years after Roe v. Wade, reproductive rights remains the third rail of American politics. Generation Roe presents a new perspective on why this is, and how readers of all beliefs can find common ground. Sarah Erdreich

The Future of Global Competition
By Noah Feldman

Author Video:

ool War provides a compelling view of the future political power struggles that await U.S.-China relations and the consequent reshaping of the international political landscape. c Not unlike the Cold War, which pitted global superpowers against N each other for geopolitical control, this new Cool War will have the e United States contending with China for ever-shrinking resources U and increasingly essential alliances. The strains of this coming a conflict are already visible in the tense relations in the Middle East c with Israel (U.S. backed) and Iran (Chinese backed) and will soon w extend beyond. Feldman provides an analysis of the future under ex this paradigm, as well as the opportunities and risks that will arise, th and makes the case for the benefits of competition. a Feldman insightfully approaches the difficulties that arise when F global superpowers struggle against each other in the modern g world, which is more economically interdependent than ever, and w presents competitive cooperation as the only viable path to peace p and prosperity for the conflicting nations. a
W are leaving the era of Chimericawhen China and America We were economically joined at the hipand entering the era of what w Noah Feldman has justly and wittily dubbed Cool War. Feldman N anatomizes the rapid transformation of the Sino-American a relationship from an unequal trading partnership into a new and heavily armed ambivalence.

A Message from the Author

I spent the first decade of the century working on the opposition and synthesis of Islam and democracy, hoping to rethink the Huntington picture of civilizational conflict. Now, the great issues of conflict and cooperation have shifted: U.S. leadership and Western democracy are juxtaposed with Chinas global aspirations and its protean, emergent governing system. Struck by the global importance of the U.S. pivot toward Asia, Ive spent the last three years trying to understand what the new U.S.China relationship means and will mean for geopolitics. Broadly, the central global question of our as-yet-unnamed historical moment is this: Are we on the brink of a new Cold War? The United States is the sole reigning superpower, but it is being challenged by the rising power of China, much as ancient Rome was challenged by Carthage and Britain was challenged by Germany in the years before World War I. Should we therefore think of the United States and China as we once did about the United States and the Soviet Union, two gladiators doomed to an increasingly globalized combat until one side fades? Or are we entering a new period of diversified global economic cooperation in which the very idea of old-fashioned, imperial power politics has become obsolete? Should we see the United States and China as more like France and Germany after World War II, adversaries wise enough to come together in an increasingly close circle of cooperation that draws in neighbors and substitutes economic exchange for geopolitical confrontation? The working answer Ive reached takes the form of a paradox: the paradox of cool war. The term cool war aims to capture two different, mutually contradictory historical developments that are taking place simultaneously. A classic struggle for power is unfolding at the same time as economic cooperation is becoming deeper and more fundamental. Unlike global power struggles of the past, the worlds major power and its leading challenger are today economically interdependent to an unprecedented degree. China needs the United States to continue buying its products. The United States needs China to continue lending it money. Their economic fates are, for the foreseeable future, tied together. Recognizing the overlapping combination of geostrategic conflict and economic interdependence is the key to making sense of what is coming and what options we have to affect it. In the book, I offer diagnosis of our situation, an analysis of the ideas and incentives of Chinas leadership, and an account of how nations, corporations, and peace-seeking institutions are likely to react to a changing world order. The complicated interaction between the United States and China will shape war and peace globally and reveal whether the dream of peaceful international cooperationembodied, albeit shakily, in the European Unioncan be extended to countries with less in common. It will determine the future of democracy as a global movement, focus the international strategies of growing powers like India and Brazil, and guide the movements of companies and capital. It will influence the United Nations, the future of international law, and the progress or regress of human rights. Ultimately, like the Cold War before it, this new kind of international engagement will involve every country on earth. Noah Feldman

emocracy has been the American religion since before the Revolutionfrom New England town halls to the multicultural democracy of Atlantic pirate ships. But can our current political system, one that seems responsive only to the wealthiest among us and leaves most Americans feeling disengaged, voiceless, and disenfranchised, really be called democratic? And if the tools of our democracy are not working to solve the rising crises we face, how can weaverage citizensmake change happen? David Graeber, one of the most influential scholars and activists of his generation, takes students on a journey through the idea of democracy, provocatively reorienting our understanding of pivotal historical moments, and extracting their lessons for todayfrom the birth of Athenian democracy and the founding of the United States of America to the global revolutions of the twentieth century and the rise of a new generation of activists. Underlying it all is a bracing argument that in the face of increasingly concentrated wealth and power in this country, a reenergized, reconceived democracyone based on consensus, equality, and broad participationcan yet provide us with the just, free, and fair society we want. The Democracy Project tells the story of the resilience of the democratic spirit and the adaptability of the democratic idea. It offers a fresh take on vital history and an impassioned argument that radical democracy is, more than ever, our best hope.

DEBT: The First 5,000 Years

Winner of the Bateson Book Prize (given by the Society for Cultural Anthropology)
Graebers book is a great, provocative text for first year college students, both for its scope and its challenging perspective. I can readily imagine it being taught by anyone with a humanities or social science background, and the ancillary debates in the press and blogs will certainly spur student engagement. The book is just the sort of example of the importance of scholarship for public life that every college student (and many college professors) will be glad to encounter as they dedicate themselves to the life of the mind.

Excerpt from The Democracy Project

The Beginning Is Near In March 2011, Micah White, editor of the Canadian magazine Adbusters, asked me to write a column on the possibility of a revolutionary movement springing up in Europe or America. At the time, the best I could think to say is that when a true revolutionary movement does arise, everyone, the organizers included, is taken by surprise. I had recently had a long conversation with an Egyptian anarchist named Dina Makram-Ebeid to that effect, at the height of the uprising at Tahrir Square, which I used to open the column. The funny thing is, my Egyptian friend told me, youve been doing this so long, you kind of forget that you can win. All these years, weve been organizing marches, rallies. . . . And if only 45 people show up, youre depressed. If you get 300, youre happy. Then one day, you get 500,000. And youre incredulous: on some level, youd given up thinking that could even happen. Hosni Mubaraks Egypt was one of the most repressive societies on earththe entire apparatus of the state was organized around ensuring that what ended up happening could never happen. And yet it did. So why not here? To be honest, most activists I know go around feeling much like my Egyptian friend used to feel we organize much of our lives around the possibility of something that were not sure we believe could ever really happen. And then it did. Of course in our case, it wasnt the fall of a military dictatorship, but the outbreak of a mass movement based on direct democracyan outcome, in its own way, just as long dreamed of by its organizers, just as long dreaded by those who held ultimate power in the country, and just as uncertain in its outcome as the overthrow of Mubarak had been. The story of this movement has been told in countless outlets already, from the Occupy Wall Street Journal to the actual Wall Street Journal, with varying motives, points of view, casts of characters, and degrees of accuracy. In most, my own importance has been vastly overstated. My role was that of a bridge between camps. But my aim in this chapter is not so much to set the historical record straight; or, even, to write a history at all, but rather to give a sense of what living at the fulcrum of such a historical convergence can be like. Much of our political culture, even daily existence, makes us feel that such events are simply impossible (indeed, there is reason to believe that our political culture is designed to make us feel that way). The result has a chilling effect on the imagination. Even those who, like Dina or myself, organized much of our lives, and most of our fantasies and aspirations, around the possibility of such outbreaks of the imagination were startled when such an outbreak actually began to happen. Which is why its crucial to begin by underlining that transformative outbreaks of imagination have happened, they are happening, they surely will continue to happen again. The experience of those who live through such events is to find our horizons thrown open; to find ourselves wondering what else we assume cannot really happen actually can. Such events cause us to reconsider everything we thought we knew about the past. This is why those in power do their best to bottle them up, to treat these outbreaks of imagination as peculiar anomalies, rather than the kind of moments from which everything, including their own power, originally emerged. So telling the story of Occupyeven if from just one actors point of viewis important; its only in the light of the sense of possibility Occupy opened up that everything else I have to say makes sense.

By Stphane Hessel and Edgar Morin
Foreword by Jeff Madrick Translated by Antony Shugaar

he Path to Hope is a short, incisive political tract that criticizes the culture of finance capitalism and calls for

a return to the humanist values of the Enlightenment: equality, liberty, freedom as defined in the Declaration of the Rights of Man, a return to community, mutual respect, freedom from poverty, and an end to theocracy and fundamentalism. The authors argue that a return to these values constitutes a path to hope, leading the way out of the present worldwide malaise brought on by economic collapse, moral failure, and an ignorance of history. For the authors, twentieth-century fascism was no mere abstractionit was a brutal system brought on by a similar malaise, a system they fought against.

The book is written by two esteemed French thinkers 94-year-old Stphane Hessel and 90-year-old Edgar Morin, following on the heels of Hessels Indignez-vous! (Time for Outrage!). Both books have become bestsellers in France and throughout Europe. Both have also become foundational documents underpinning the worldwide protest movement, of which Occupy Wall Street is the American subset.

About the Authors: Stphane Hessel and Edgar Morin

STPHANE HESSEL was a member of the French Resistance during World War II, a concentration camp survivor, a diplomat, and editor of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. His book Indignez-vous! has sold 3,500,000 copies. EDGAR MORIN is a renowned French philosopher and sociologist who fought in the French Resistance.


A Message from Jeff Madrick, senior fellow of the Roosevelt Institute and author of Age of Greed
I do not necessarily believe in pluralism for its own sake. It always makes sense for students to understand opposing viewpoints, of course. But reading the many opposing views on key intellectual issues is not always an adequate path to knowledge. Should young students be required to read the works in support of creationism, for example, to understand the pros and cons of evolutionary theory? Or all the efforts to undermine global warming theories? At some point, one has to separate the theories that move beyond superstition, that are grounded in adequate deductive thought, and that are based on available empirical knowledge from those that do not and are not. The social sciences clothe themselves in the virtues of being grounded in deductive thought and empirical knowledge, of course, and that is the problem. How can students broaden their perspectives constructively? Economics in most academic institutions has become especially uniform, if also well-disguised in scientific methodology, and has failed in so many ways that a search for broader views about economic life and how it affects social life, aspirations, true freedom, and for many outright survival, is necessary for college students. The Path to Hope is one of those educated and passionate alternatives to prevailing economic thought, and one of such sweep and urgency that I believe it is extremely useful for students to read it. I would recommend a glance at my own foreword to the book by the eminent ninety-somethings whose experience of modern society began with the French Resistance during World War II. In essence, Stphane Hessel and Edgar Morin are calling for a new communitarianism. They are also saying traditional economics has failed. How do they justify the claim? As I write in the foreword, they implicitly say just look around you: extreme poverty and inequality, ever more power to the wealthy, advanced economies brought down by dubious financial speculation, and all the tensions that poor economic performance conjure up, including rising ethnic bigotry. Isnt such bigotry also behind the euro crisis? Look at the slurs that the Greeks have been subjected to. It wont take long to read Path to Hope, but it will inspire us all. It will open vistas for young people too entrenched in the narrow and often self-serving conventional wisdom of todays media and the shallow values of much of todays popular entertainment. Above all, it should lead to more readingof history, political philosophy, good fiction, and, let us hope, unorthodox social scientists like Hessel and Morin.

rom the heroic lawyer who spoke out against Clarence Thomas in the historic confirmation hearings twenty years ago, comes Anita Hills first book since the bestselling Speaking Truth to Power. A On the twentieth anniversary of the Clarence Thomas confirmation O hearings, where she spoke out against workplace sexual h harassment, Anita Hill turns her attention to the topic of home. As h our country recovers from the subprime mortgage meltdown and o the resulting devastation of so many families, communities, and t cities, Hill takes us inside the crisis of home we are confronting. c A Along the way she exposes its deep roots in race and gender i inequities that continue to haunt the country and imperil every A Americans ability to achieve the American Dream. Reaching back t to the story of her slave ancestors, as well as narrating the stories of i individuals who are now caught in the crossfire of the current h housing collapse, she invites us into homes across the U.S., from h her grandparents homestead in Arkansas to Baltimores toughest n neighborhoods. Hill bridges the experiences of women and men struggling to make homes in our country and the world of high s finance and mortgage lending. In this period of recovery and its f aftermath, what is at stake is the inclusive democracy the a Constitution promises. The achievement of that ideal, Hill argues, C depends on each Americans ability to secure a place that provides d access to every opportunity our country has to offer. Building on the great strides of the womens rights and civil rights struggles, Hill presents concrete proposals, which encourage students to broaden their thinking about home and to reimagine equality for Americas future.
In a book that is rigorous and heartfelt, sharply analytical and deeply moving, Anita Hill examines the idea of what home means to Americans. Bringing to bear her formidable skills as a scholar of American law, history, and culture, Hill has produced a personal narrative that reaches across color and class to explore how our family homes and our national home are inextricably linked to how we understand achievement, opportunity, and equality.

A Message from the Author

Its hard to believe that almost two decades have passed since the dramatic Clarence Thomas Senate confirmation hearing that had such an impact on so many in our nation, including perhaps some of you. Ive been very proud of the era of heightened awareness and concern about sexual harassment that followed that frankly grueling experience. I have had the privilege of meeting exceptional women and men in nearly every state in the country who seek nothing more than to end behavior, like sexual harassment, that keeps women from reaching their full potential. Some real good did emerge. And I wrote an autobiographical book that some of you may remember, Speaking Truth to Power, back in 1997. For me the positive developments of the recent past are just the beginning. Starting from the premise that a fair and just society is in everyones best interest, I have spent a great deal of time studying, researching, and lecturing about how important it is that we strive for full equality in our nation, no matter how difficult an achievement it may seem. Ive been working on my new book, Reimagining Equality, which reflects my ideas about how we can begin to realize equality for women, for blacks, and, particularly, for black women. In it I look back at my ancestors, and forward, based on my experiences and discoveries since the hearing. I hope you will enjoy the stories and ideas presented here. I wanted to publish this new book on the twentieth anniversary of the hearingwhen there will be a fresh round of media and other attentionnot only to shine a bright light on the accomplishments of the past twenty years, but also to examine the issues that continue to trouble me and many of you. Its my hope that this book will help a new generation to better understand and meet the challenges of remaking our society into one that might actually reach the goal of liberty and justice for all. Thank you for your support of my work, past and present, and all best wishes for a successful year. Anita Hill

A Message from the Author

There is perhaps no dynamic in American political life more toxic for our understanding of elections than that between the people who run campaigns and those who study them. Political practitioners and academics tend to hold one another at best at a wary distance, at worst in mutual disdain, each side smugly confident in the superiority of its worldview, a supposed contest between real-world street smarts and intellectual rigor. Political journalists have typically found themselves caught between the two. We share the scholars aspiration to explain electoral results with an appreciation for the enduring qualities of our political system and an eye for areas of historical change, yet we alone are tasked with accounting for the daily activities of candidates. When we try to understand why those seeking office do what they do, we are forced to rely on the strategists and operatives they have hired to illuminate the thinking behind those moves. This leads journalists too often to magnify the smallest developments, and political scientists to reduce that coverage to caricature: a media obsessed with the hourly machinations and oblivious to the persistent power of larger forces and conditions. Yet the spheres of political academics and practitioners have begun to intersect meaningfully over the past decade, an interaction responsible for some of the most important advances in 21st-century electioneering methods. I stumbled into that electioneering geek culture in the aftermath of the 2008 election, leading me to write a story for The New York Times Magazine about the use of randomized-control trials by campaign professionalsand the increasingly behaviorist orientation of their thinking about voter motivation that has resulted. That led to a book, The Victory Lab: The Secret Science of Winning Campaigns, which was published two years later. In the heat of the Republican primary season, we released my favorite chapter-in-progress as a short ebook, Rick Perry and His Eggheads. It was the inside story of the time the Texas governorwho liked to say you dont have to have a PhD from Harvard in political science to understand our economicscovertly enlisted a quartet of political scientists (including two from the Ivy League) and gave them free reign to run experiments within a reelection campaign. It is only the tools of social science, particularly randomized-control trials, that are capable of empirically assessing the effectiveness of campaign activity. When combined with statistical models predicting individual-level voter behaviorbuilt on hundreds of political, demographic, and consumer variablessuch experimental designs offer campaigns unprecedented ability to measure the impact of specific persuasive messages or mobilization tactics. The challenge for both academics and journalists is to reconcile our appreciation for the major structural forces that shape political conditions with our understanding that campaigns have new ways of affecting electoral outcomes at the margin. The big stuff matters, but the small stuff does, too. Sasha Issenberg

How the U.S. Has Undermined Peace in the Middle East t
By Rashid Khalidi

or more than seven decades the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian people has raged on with no end in sight, and for much of that time, the United States has been involved as a m mediator in the conflict. In this book, acclaimed historian Rashid m Khalidi zeroes in on the United States role as the purported K impartial broker in this failed peace process. i Khalidi closely analyzes three historical moments that illuminate K how the United States involvement has, in fact, thwarted progress h toward peace between Israel and Palestine. The first moment he t investigates is the Reagan Plan of 1982, when Israeli prime i minister Menachem Begin refused to accept the Reagan m administrations proposal to reframe the Camp David Accords a more impartially. The second moment covers the period after the m Madrid Peace Conference, from 1991 to 1993, during which M negotiations between Israel and Palestine were brokered by the n United States until the signing of the secretly negotiated Oslo U accords. Finally, Khalidi takes on President Barack Obamas retreat a from plans to insist on halting the settlements in the West Bank. f Through in-depth research into and keen analysis of these three T moments, as well as his own firsthand experience as an advisor to m the Palestinian delegation at the 1991 preOslo negotiations in t Washington, D.C., Khalidi reveals how the United States and Israel have actively colluded to prevent a Palestinian state and resolve the situation in Israels favor. Brokers of Deceit bares the truth about why peace in the Middle East has been impossible to achieve: for decades, U.S. policymakers have masqueraded as unbiased agents working to bring the two sides together, when, in fact, they have been the agents of continuing injustice, effectively preventing the difficult but essential steps needed to achieve peace in the region.
Drawing on his own experience as a Palestinian negotiator and recently released documents, Rashid Khalidi mounts a frontal attack on the myths and misconceptions that have come to surround Americas role in the so-called peace process which is all process and no peace. The title is not too strong: the book demonstrates conclusively that far from serving as an honest broker, the U.S. continues to act as Israels lawyerwith dire consequences for its own interests, for the Palestinians, and for the entire region. Professor Khalidi deserves much credit for his superb exposition of the fatal gap between the rhetoric and reality of American diplomacy on this critically important issue.

A Message from the Author

I served as an advisor to the Madrid and Washington Palestinian-Israeli negotiations from 19911993, and long wanted to use documents that I collected then, but I never found an opportunity to do so. Then the research of one my graduate students on American Middle East policy revealed a trove of newly declassified American and Israeli materials that cast a fascinating light on what I had experienced in the early 1990s. Together with my observations on the Obama administrations failures in dealing with the Palestine issue, it inspired me to write this short book. This is not a comprehensive history of U.S. Middle East policy, or of U.S. policy on Palestine. Instead, it focuses on three moments: one is the period 197882, another is the 199193 negotiations, and the third is the last two years of Obamas first term. I saw that the specific patterns of U.S. bias in favor of inflexible Israeli positions that we had seen in our negotiations with the Israelis were precisely mirrored in earlier administrations, and that little or nothing has changed under this president. The book addresses some of the common distortions of language that are so prevalent where the Palestine issue is concerned in Israeli-American official and media discourse. I deal with corrupted terms like peace process, Palestinian autonomy, Israeli security, and terrorism, all of which in this parlance have a heavily loaded meaning. I thus am challenging both those who use these terms in policy making, political discourse and the media, and the vast literature that reproduces them without critical analysis of what they actually mean. As I suggest in the book, this is truly Orwellian, and this corrupt language has a profound impact on reality. I show that an autonomy scheme for the Palestinians devised by Menachem Begin to provide permanent Israeli control over the entirety of greater Eretz Israel in the late 1970s has defined every essential feature of the so-called Palestinian Authority. In practice, this has meant ultimate Israeli control of security, land, and water, unlimited settlement, and exclusive Israeli possession of Jerusalem. The book shows that this was not just Begins wish list. It has become the bedrock of the policy of every Israeli government since. Even worse, it constitutes the ceiling of what U.S. policy will allow to the Palestinians. Needless to say, such a scheme cannot produce peace, but is rather designed to prolong occupation, settlement, and the subjugation of the Palestinian people, which it has successfully done for the past 20 years. In this book, I unpublished documents produced by the Palestinian delegation from 199193 (originals are available at, together with other documents, to show that American policy on Palestine has echoed key Israeli desiderata from 1977 until 2012. The result is that the United States never was an honest broker. In fact, it usually served as Israels lawyer, a description by Aaron David Miller of how he and other policy makers under several administrations actually operated. I intended this book for a general audience, as well as academics and people in the media and government, and I encourage you to consider it for use in your courses on American politics and government, U.S. foreign policy, and the politics and international relations of the Middle East.

The Civil War and the Social Revolution that Transformed the South
By Bruce Levine
Author Video:

major new history of the Civil War, The Fall of the House of Dixie tells the riveting story of how that conflict upended the economic, political, and social life of the old South. In 1860, the American South was a vast, wealthy, imposing region where a small minority had amassed great political power and enormous fortunes. By the end of 1865, these structures of wealth and power had been shattered. Millions of black people had gained their freedom, many poorer whites had ceased following their wealthy neighbors, and plantation owners were devastated, losing not only their slaves but also their political power, their worldview, and their very way of life. As historian Bruce Levine demonstrates, the true stakes of the Civil War become clearer than ever before, as slaves battle for their freedom in the face of brutal reprisals; Abraham Lincoln and his party turn what began as a limited war for the Union into a crusade against slavery; and the slave owners grow ever more desperate as their social order is destroyed. Not only Dixie, but all of American society is changed forever.

Thoroughly argued and engrossing, The Fall of the House of Dixie illuminates the way a war undertaken to preserve the status quo became a second American Revolution whose impact on the country was as strong and lasting as that of our first. The book presents a detailed account of the destruction of the old South during the Civil War, offering a fresh perspective on the most colossal struggle in our history and the new world it brought into being.
Levine illuminates the experiences of southern men and women white and black, free and enslaved, civilians and soldierswith a sure grasp of the historical sources and a deft literary touch. He masterfully recaptures an era of unsurpassed drama and importance. Gary W. Gallagher, author of The Confederate War This book limns the relationship between slavery and the rise and fall of the Confederacy more clearly and starkly than any other study. General readers and seasoned scholars alike will find new information and insights in this eye-opening account. James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom

A Message from the Author

In a recent national survey, nearly half of all those queried denied that slavery was the main cause of the U.S. Civil War. And that view is gaining, not losing, ground. Among younger people polled (those under 30 years of age), fully 60% responded that way. Many university students share that view. Like so many other modern Americans, they have come to regard the Civil War as a dramatic conflict in military terms, one filled with derring-do and pathos, but one without much larger meaning or import. They are therefore surprised to learn not only that slavery brought on the Civil War but also why and how the defense of the national Union led to slaverys destruction. As we now observe the 150th anniversaries of the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation, these questions are in the public view more than at any time in the recent past. I wrote The Fall of the House of Dixie in part to clarify those subjects and to place them where they belongat the center of the Civil War narrative. In 186061, leaders of both the Union and the Confederacy knew and said that it was precisely the sharpening dispute over slaverys future that was leading most slave states to try to break from (and so break up) the U.S., initiating the bloodiest war in the nations history to accomplish that goal. In his inaugural address, One section of our country believes slavery is right, and ought to be extended, Abraham Lincoln noted, while the other believes it is wrong, and ought not to be extended. This is the only substantial dispute. The Confederacys secretary of state agreed. Southern whites had decided, he wrote, that the swift growth of the anti-slavery Republican Party threatened to destroy their social system. With interests of such overwhelming magnitude imperiled, Jefferson Davis explained, the people of the Southern States were driven . . . to the adoption of some course of action to avert the danger. If the preservation of those interests and that social system required war, Confederates added, so be it. But that war yielded results drastically different from those its leaders intended. Abraham Lincolns Union government initially hoped to quell the rebellion quickly and without laying hands on the institution of slavery. But what the former slave and abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass called the inexorable logic of events eventually compelled a change of course. The logic of the situation taught Lincoln and his party that military victory required an attack on slavery and the recruitment of former slaves as laborers and then as soldiers in the Union cause. And in the event, as Lincoln noted repeatedly, the active aid of almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors proved crucial to the rebellions defeat. The emancipation and recruitment of these people, Lincoln explained, was the only policy that could can or could save the Union. Any substantial departure from it insures the success of the rebellion. This war-spawned dynamic ultimately led to the constitutional liberation of all slaves living anywhere in the United States and to the outlawing of slavery per se as an institution. Thus, a conflict that slave owners initiated to preserve slavery ultimately abolished it far earlier and more radically than could have occurred otherwise. That war also wiped out much of the Southern elites wealth and broke its once-powerful grip on national government. This fundamental transformation of social and political reality represented (as many at the time recognized) a second American revolution. The story of how that occurred must form a key building block of any real understanding of this countrys history. In that context, I invite you to consider using my book to engage your students as they encounter this defining era. Bruce Levine

I a world full of nascent, potentially protracted wars, Fredrik In Logevalls Embers of War is manifestly an important book, illuminating the long, small-step path we followed into the quagmire of Vietnam. But I was also struck by the quality of Logevalls writing. He has the eye of a novelist, the cadence of a splendid prose stylist, and a filmmakers instinct for story. Embers of War is not just an important book of history, it is an utterly compelling read. Robert Olen Butler, author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, winner of the Pulitzer Prize Fredrik Logevall is a wonderful writer and historian. In his new book on the origins of the American war in Vietnam, he gives a fascinating and dramatic account of the French war and its aftermath, from the perspectives of the French, the Vietnamese, and the Americans. Using previously untapped sources and a deep knowledge of diplomatic history, Logevall shows to devastating effect how America found itself on the road to Vietnam. Frances FitzGerald, author of Fire in the Lake, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award Superb . . . penetrating . . . Embers of War is a product of formidable international research. It is lucidly and comprehensively composed. And it leverages a consistently potent analytical perspective. . . . Outstanding.

A Message from the Author

Why are we in Vietnam? The question resounded in dorm rooms and lecture halls and student centers on Americas college campuses in the late 1960s. It sparked heated debates at dinner tables in the nations homes. Norman Mailer made it the title of an iconic novel in 1967. And in a sense the question never went away, even as it was altered to the past tense after the signing of the Paris Peace Accords in 1973. It now became Why were we in Vietnam? and in short order it came dominate much of the writing about the war by journalists, memoirists, and historians. And no wonder it did so, given the wars deep and continuing resonance in American politics and culture. The intervention in Vietnam has been called the defining experience of the second half of the twentieth century for Americans, and its arguably the longest and bloodiest conflict in post-1945 world affairs, killing perhaps three million and more than 58,000 Americans. It also wreaked vast destruction on huge portions of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. The large and growing literature on the conflict contains a curious feature. In their rush to analyze Americas war, most authors have given remarkably short shrift to the French war that came before it. This is unfortunate, for close attention to that earlier history is imperative if we are to understand why the United States ended up in this faraway place, 7,000 miles from the coast of California, a place many Americans did not know existed. It is imperative if we are comprehend why the United States, borne out of an anticolonial reaction against Britain, opted to back France in a colonial war against Ho Chi Minhs revolutionary nationalist forces, and then, once that effort ended in defeat, chose to try to succeed where the French had failed. It turns out that the Second World War and the French Indochina War that followed were absolutely crucial to all that would happen later in the Vietnam. Nor is it merely as a prelude to Americas Vietnam debacle that the earlier period merits our attention. Straddling as it did the twentieth centurys midpoint, the French Indochina War sat at the intersection of the grand political forces that drove world affairs during the century. Thus Indochinas experience between 1945 and 1954 is intimately bound up with the transformative effects of the Second World War and the outbreak and escalation of the Cold War and, in particular, with the emergence of the United States as the predominant power in Asian and world affairs. And thus the struggle is also part of the story of European colonialism and its encounter with anticolonial nationalistswho drew their inspiration in part from European and American ideas and promises. In this way, the French Indochina War was simultaneously an East-West and North-South conflict, pitting European imperialism in its twilight phase against the two main competitors that gained momentum by mid century: Communist-inspired revolutionary nationalism and U.S.-backed liberal internationalism. If similar processes played out around much of the world after 1945, Vietnam deserves special study because it was one of the first places where this destructive dynamic could be seen. It was also where the dynamic remained in place, decade after bloody decade. Embers of War considers this fascinating and important history anew, using archival materials from several countries and the full range of published sources. I worked on the book for ten years and have been honored and humbled by the discussions it has initiated and the feedback Ive received: one reviewer named it the definitive history of the French war and the making of Americas struggle. I invite you to read my book and to consider using it in your courses. I am confident it will get your students thinkingand talkingin new, meaningful ways about this important and transformational time in their nations history. Fredrik Logevall

ne of my favorite ideas is, never to keep an unnecessary soldier, Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1792. Neither Jefferson nor the other Founders could ever have envisioned the modern n national security state, with its tens of thousands of privateers; its n bloated Department of Homeland Security; its rusting nuclear bl weapons, ill-maintained and difficult to dismantle; and its strange w fascination with an unproven counterinsurgency doctrine. fa Written with bracing wit and intelligence, Rachel Maddows Drift W ar argues that weve drifted away from Americas original ideals and b become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, and all the fi financial and human costs that it entails. To understand how weve ar arrived at such a dangerous place, Maddow takes students from the V Vietnam War to todays war in Afghanistan, along the way ex exploring the disturbing rise of executive authority, the gradual o outsourcing of our war-making capabilities to private companies, th the plummeting percentage of American families whose children fi fight our constant wars for us, and even the changing fortunes of G G.I. Joe. Ultimately, she shows students just how much we stand to lo lose by allowing the priorities of the national security state to ov overpower our political discourse. Sensible yet provocative, Drift will reinvigorate a loud and jangly political debate about how, when, and where to apply Americas strength and powerand who gets to make those decisions.
Thank Ms. Maddow for picking this and every other fight that Drift provokes. It will be a smarter public debate than the kinds were used to. Janet Maslin, The New York Times Maddows distinctive voice in Drift is highly intelligent, often incredulous and intermittently and humorously profane. . . . Her thesis, which is passionately and effectively articulated, remind[s] us of how far we have drifted from linking the sacrifices of our armed forces around the world to the citizens at home they so selflessly serve . . . Maddow . . . [has] provided readers with a timely and perhaps necessary provocation to examine the far-reaching consequences of the American way of war. Gordon M. Goldstein, The Washington Post Rachel Maddows Drift is a long overdue and provocative examination of the abuses, excesses and just plain foolish elements in our national security systems. These are issues that deserve our attention. Tom Brokaw, NBC News Special Correspondent and best-selling author of The Greatest Generation

Excerpt from Drift

National security is a real imperative for our countryfor any country. But the connection between that imperative and what we do about it has gone as frowsy as my hometowns little pump station in high August. Our national security policy isnt much related to its stated justifications anymore. To whatever extent we do argue and debate what defense and intelligence policy ought to be, that debateour political processdoesnt actually determine what we do. Were not directing that policy anymore; it just follows its own course. Which means weve effectively lost control of a big part of who we are as a country. And weve broken faith with some of the best advice the founders ever gave us. Our constitutional inheritance didnt point us in this direction. If the colonists hadnt rejected British militarism and the massive financial burden of maintaining the British military, America wouldnt exist. The Constitutional Convention debated whether America should even have a standing army. The founders feared that maintaining one would drain our resources in the same way that maintaining the eighteenth-century British military had burdened the colonies. They worried that a powerful military could rival civilian government for power in our new country, and of course they worried that having a standing army around would create too much of a temptation to use it. Those worries about the inevitable incentives to war were part of what led to the division of government at the heart of our Constitution, building into the structure of our new country a deliberate peaceable bias. But in the past generation or two, weve drifted off that historical course. The steerings gone wobbly, the brakes have failed. Its not a conspiracy, there arent rogue elements pushing us to subvert our national interests to instead serve theirs. Its been more entertaining and more boneheaded than that. The good news is we dont need a radical new vision of postCold War American power. We just need a small c conservative return to our constitutional roots, a course correction. This book is about how and why weve drifted. It wasnt inevitable. And its fixable.

Excerpt from Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power

To his friends, who were numerous and devoted, Jefferson was among the greatest men who had ever lived, a Renaissance figure who was formidable without seeming overbearing, sparkling without being showy, winning without appearing cloying. Yet to his foes, who were numerous and prolific, Jefferson was an atheist and a fanatic, a demagogue and a dreamer, a womanly Francophile who could not be trusted with the government of a great nation. His task was to change those views as best he could. He longed for affection and for approval. A master of emotional and political manipulation, sensitive to criticism, obsessed with his reputation, and devoted to America, he was drawn to the world beyond Monticello, endlessly at work, as he put it, to see the standard of reason at length erected after so many ages during which the human mind has been held in vassalage by kings, priests, and nobles. As a planter, lawyer, legislator, governor, diplomat, secretary of state, vice president, and president, Jefferson spent much of his life seeking control over himself and power over the lives and destinies of others. For Jefferson, politics was not a dispiriting distraction but an undertaking that made everything else possible. Inspired by his own fathers example, he long sought to play the part of a patriarch, acceptingeven embracingthe accompanying burdens of responsibility. He was the father of the ideal of individual liberty, of the Louisiana Purchase, of the Lewis and Clark expedition, of the American West. He led the first democratic movement in the new republic to check the power and influence of established forces. And perhaps most important, he gave the nation the idea of American progressthe animating spirit that the future could be better than the present or the past. The greatest American politicians since have prospered by projecting a Jeffersonian vision that the countrys finest hours lay ahead. The story of Jeffersons life fascinates still in part because he found the means to endure and, in many cases, to prevail in the face of extreme partisanship, economic uncertainty, and external threat. Jeffersons political leadership is instructive, offering us the example of a president who can operate at two levels, cultivating the hope of a brighter future while preserving the political flexibility and skill to bring the ideal as close as possible to reality.

A Message from the Author

This book is about an evolution in American society that has taken place since November 21, 1963, leading to the formation of classes that are different in kind and in their degree of separation from anything that the nation has ever known. I will argue that the divergence into these separate classes, if it continues, will end what has made America America. To forestall misinterpretation, let me spell out what this book does not argue. First, I do not argue that America was ever a classless society. From the beginning, rich and poor have usually lived in different parts of town, gone to different churches, and had somewhat different manners and mores. It is not the existence of classes that is new, but the emergence of classes that diverge on core behaviors and valuesclasses that barely recognize their underlying American kinship. Second, I do not make a case for Americas decline as a world power. The economic dynamics that have produced the class society I deplore have, paradoxically, fostered the blossoming of Americas human capital. Those dynamics will increase, not diminish, our competitiveness on the world stage in the years ahead. Nor do I forecast decline in Americas military and diplomatic supremacy. But the American project was not about maximizing national wealth nor international dominance. The American project consists of the continuing effort, begun with the founding, to demonstrate that human beings can be left free as individuals and families to live their lives as they see fit, coming together voluntarily to solve their joint problems. The polity based on that idea led to a civic culture that was seen as exceptional by all the world. That culture was so widely shared among Americans that it amounted to a civil religion. To be an American was to be different from other nationalities, in ways that Americans treasured. That culture is unraveling. I focus on what happened, not why. I discuss some of the whys, but most of them involve forces that cannot be changed. My primary goal is to induce recognition of the ways in which America is coming apart at the seamsnot seams of race or ethnicity, but of class. That brings me to the subtitle of this book and its curious specification of white America. For decades now, trends in American life have been presented in terms of race and ethnicity, with nonLatino whites (hereafter, just whites) serving as the reference pointthe black poverty rate compared to the white poverty rate, the percentage of Latinos who go to college compared to the percentage of whites who go to college, and so on. Theres nothing wrong with that. I have written books filled with such comparisons. But this strategy has distracted our attention from the way that the reference point itself is changing. And so this book uses evidence based overwhelmingly on whites in the description of the new upper class in part 1 and based exclusively on whites in the description of the new lower class in part 2. My message: Dont kid yourselves that we are looking at stresses that can be remedied by attacking the legacy of racism or by restricting immigration. The trends I describe exist independently of ethnic heritage. In the penultimate chapter, I broaden the picture to include everyone. As with all books on policy, this one will eventually discuss how we might change course. But discussing solutions is secondary to this book, just as understanding causes is secondary. The important thing is to look unblinkingly at the nature of the problem. Charles Murray

Excerpt from Out of Order

I had the privilege of serving on the Supreme Court from 1981 until 2006, as it confronted issues running the gamut from states rights and race-based affirmative action to a defendants right to effective assistance of counsel. My colleagues and I always strove to reach the right answers, and I hope that we did. We were able to resolve tough questions in an atmosphere insulated as far as possible from political pressures. . . . The many Justices who have come and gone have made contributionsdramatic and subtle, renowned and lesser knownto not only the law, but the institution and its internal operations. In this book, I hope to shed light on some of those transformations. This book offers snapshots of the people and events that reflect the Courts evolution and journey. . . . The Courts dramatic evolution over time is humbling to review. In my nearly twenty-five years on the Supreme Court, I was always cognizant of how my tenure, lengthy as it was, was but one small part of a rich and unfolding tapestry. Each Justice plays merely a supporting role in the Courts ongoing narrative, and each Justices experience is but a snapshot in time. I am reminded of this each time I walk through the Court and admire the succession of portraits some famous, some less knowngracing its hallways. The Court as it exists today reflects the contributions of those who devoted their lives to it. When I retired from the Court, I found myself increasingly being asked by people across the country and across the world for my insider perspective on the Court and its goings-on. Very often, the inquirer would have recently seen a newspaper editorial about a controversial case or read some supposed tell-all book on the Court. I would always answer that my years of service were a privilege, that I had great affection for my colleagues, and that the Justices strive to reach the right result in each case. I came to realize that what I wished to convey above all was my understanding of how the Court evolved, and how it represents so much more than what the days headlines can capture. It embodies the bold vision of the Framers of our Constitution, a triumph of the rule of law, and the culmination of the hard work, risks, and sacrifices of many people. I wanted to write about aspects of the Courts rich heritage that interested and inspired me. Hence this book. Only when we reflect on the Courts journey as a whole can we truly appreciate the remarkable feat of our Founding Fathers and the remarkable accomplishments of our thriving federal judiciary.

he last great campaign of John F. Kennedys life was not the battle for reelection he did not live to wage, but the struggle for a sustainable peace with the Soviet Union. To Move the World recalls the th extraordinary days from October 1962 to September 1963, when JFK JF marshaled the power of oratory and his remarkable political skills sk to establish more peaceful relations with the Soviet Union and a dramatic slowdown in the proliferation of nuclear arms. Kennedy Ke and his Soviet counterpart, Nikita Khrushchev, led their nations na during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the two superpowers came ca to the brink of nuclear war. This near-death experience shook bo leaders deeply. Jeffrey D. Sachs shows how Kennedy emerged both fr from the Missile Crisis with the determination and prodigious skills to forge a new and less threatening direction for the world. D During his final year in office, Kennedy gave a series of speeches in w which he pushed back against the momentum of the Cold War to pe persuade the world that peace with the Soviets was possible. M Mankind, argued Kennedy, could bring a new peace into reality th through a bold vision combined with concrete and practical m measures. Sachs shows how Kennedy campaigned for his vision and op opened the eyes of the American people and the world to the po possibilities of peace. Featuring the full text of JFKs speeches from this period, as well as striking photographs, To Move the World gives students a startlingly fresh perspective on Kennedys presidency and a model for strong leadership and problem solving in our time.

Excerpt from To Move the World

The Quest for Peace When John F. Kennedy came to office in January 1961, the world lived in peril of a nuclear war between the two superpowers. The Cold War confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union would eventually consume trillions of dollars and millions of lives in wars fought around the world. At times, humanity seemed to be gripped by forces we cannot control, a pessimistic view that Kennedy noted and strenuously argued against in his Peace Speech. And yet the power of those disruptive forces at times was indeed nearly overwhelming, causing events to spin beyond the control even of presidents, Communist Party chairmen, and the countries they led. The Cold War was in every sense a stepchild of the two world wars. Those wars created the structures of geopolitics, military might, and, perhaps most important of all, the psychological mindsets that determined the course of the Cold War. John Kennedys peace strategy would emerge from his intimate understanding of the dynamics that had driven the two wars. The first war he knew as a voracious student of history, especially the history as written by Winston Churchill. The second war he knew firsthand. The years between 1938 and 1945 were a deeply formative period of his adult lifeas a student in prewar London while his father was U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom; as a young author grappling with the question of why England had failed for so long to confront Hitler; as a patrol boat captain in the Pacific, where his vessel PT-109 was sunk by a Japanese destroyer; and as part of a grieving family when his elder brother was lost in a daring bombing mission over Germany. The overwhelming question facing the world, and facing Kennedy during his presidency, was how to prevent a third world war. The factors that had caused the two warsgeopolitics, arms races, blunders, bluster, miscalculations, fears, and opportunismcontinued to operate and to threaten a new conflagration. Yet the context was also fundamentally new and more threatening. The nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 to conclude World War II had ushered in the nuclear age, and had made the stakes incalculably higher. A thermonuclear bomb could now carry far more explosive force than all of the bombs of the Second World War. Kennedys worldview on these issues was shaped above all by the influence and model of Winston Churchill, Englands great author-politician-warrior-statesman, whose masterly history of the first war, The World Crisis, described a tragic era of war through miscalculation; whose warnings about Hitler in the 1930s had gone unheeded until almost too late; whose leadership as prime minister between 1940 and 1945 enabled the United Kingdom to survive and eventually triumph over Hitler; whose warnings in 1946, just after World War II ended, alerted the West to the rising threat of Soviet power; and whose calls during the 1940s and 1950s for a negotiated settlement with the Soviet Union did much to influence Kennedys peace strategy as president. Kennedys lifelong fascination with, learning from, and urge to emulate Winston Churchill has been recounted by many biographers. The greatest problem facing Kennedy (and indeed the world) in drawing lessons from the two world wars was that the lessons were highly complex, subtle, and even seemingly contradictory. World War I seemed to be a lesson about self-fulfilling crises, where the fear of war itself led to an arms race, while the arms race in turn led to a world primed for war. These lessons seemed to call for restraint in the arms race and avoidance of a self-fulfilling rush to war, and so even as Hitler rearmed Germany in the 1930s, in contravention of the Treaty of Versailles that had ended World War I, Britain avoided provocations that could spiral out of control. Most famously, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain argued that it would be better to accede to German demands on border adjustments with Czechoslovakia, and so appeased Hitler in the name of peace at the Munich conference in 1938, a disastrous mistake that fueled Hitlers drive to war.

ulitzer Prize-winner Hedrick Smiths new book is an eyeopening account of how the American Dream has been dismantled. Smith connects political and economic developments and significant shifts in American capitalism under the last six presidents and combines penetrating profiles of corporate and political leaders with close-up reporting on the experience of average Americans. This interdisciplinary work offers excellent reading and teaching material for American history, political science, economics, public policy, business, journalism and government courses. This is a book full of surprises and revelationsthe accidental beginnings of the 401(k) plan, with disastrous economic consequences for many; the major policy changes that began under Jimmy Carter; and how America lost the title of Land of Opportunity. Smith reveals how pivotal laws and policies were altered while the public wasnt looking, how Congress often ignores public opinion, why moderate politicians got shoved to the sidelines, and how Wall Street often wins politically by hiring over 1,400 former government officials as lobbyists. This magnificent work of history and reportage is filled with the penetrating insights, provocative discoveries, and great empathy of a master journalist. Finally, Smith offers ideas for restoring Americas great promise and reclaiming the American Dream.
Who stole the American Dream? The short answer to the question in the title of Hedrick Smiths new book is: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Wal-Mart. But the longer answer is one heck of a story, told by one of the great journalists of our time . . . [a] sweeping, authoritative examination of the last four decades of the American economic experience. . . . Smith [has] extraordinary clarity in describing this sometimes obscured narrative arc. Huffington Post Hedrick Smith has done it again! Who Stole the American Dream? provides a readable and comprehensive account of how Americans have been robbed of our dream of a broad middle class over the past forty years. It is essential reading.

About the Author: Hedrick Smith

HEDRICK SMITH is a bestselling author, Pulitzer Prizewinning reporter, and Emmy Awardwinning producer. His books The Russians and The Power Game were critically acclaimed bestsellers and are widely used in college courses today. As a reporter at The New York Times, Smith shared a Pulitzer for the Pentagon Papers series and won a Pulitzer for his international reporting from Russia in 19711974. Smiths prime-time specials for PBS have won several awards for examining systemic problems in modern America and offering insightful, prescriptive solutions.


A Message from the Author

For years, hundreds of colleges, university, and high school courses have used my books, The Russians and The Power Game: How Washington Works, in their courses. Professors and teachers have trusted the quality of my reporting, research, and writing. Students have found my work readable and intellectually engaging. My new book, Who Stole the American Dream?, is especially well suited for university courses and seminars and high school classrooms. It combines on-the-spot reporting and storytelling with academic-level research (more than 1,000 footnotes), making it both authoritative and highly readable. My thematic treatment of American political and economic history from the 1970s to the present would work well in interdisciplinary seminars as well as courses in government, economics, political science, public policy, journalism, and modern American history. In The Russians, I took a generation of students inside the Soviet Union. In The Power Game, I took a second generation inside Washingtons corridors of power. Now, I am taking a third generation across America to show how seismic changes, sparked by landmark political and economic decisions, have transformed America over the past four decades. Drawing on fifty years of experience, I have pieced together a revealing and fascinating narrative, starting with Lewis Powells provocative 1971 memo that triggered a political rebellion, which permanently altered the landscape of power in Washington. As The New York Review of Books observed, my book provides an important alternative to the conventional, market-based explanation of Americas transformation from the middle-class power and prosperity and political bipartisanship of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, to the gridlocked politics, starkly unequal democracy, and gaping economic inequalities of today. Hedrick Smith has done it again, says Harvard Business School Professor Jay Lorsch. Who Stole the American Dream? provides a readable and comprehensive account of how Americans have been robbed of our dream of a broad middle class over the past forty years. . . . It is essential reading. Essential for students seeking to understand the evolution of contemporary America. Among other things, my book documents the accidental beginnings of the 401(k) plan, with disastrous economic consequences for millions of Americans; the major policy changes that began under Jimmy Carter (before Ronald Reagan); how the New Economy disrupted Americas engine of shared prosperity, the virtuous circle of growth; and how America lost the title of Land of Opportunity. I describe the transfer of $6 trillion in middle-class wealth from homeowners to banks before the housing boom went bust, and how the U.S. policy tilt favoring the rich is stunting Americas economic growth. I show how pivotal policies were altered while the public wasnt looking, how Congress has often ignored public opinion, how America has lost the vital moderate center in politics, and how Wall Street has forged a symbiotic connection with Washington. In lectures, my goal is to connect with college students. On two- or three-day campus residencies, I have enjoyed meeting with classes and student groups, leading discussions, enjoying give-and-take, sharing my reporting and life experience, even answering questions about career advice. These visits constitute my most rewarding experiences touring for the book. I look forward to the opportunity to visit your campus, and to connect with your students. Hedrick Smith

The Evolutionary Origins of What Divides Us

ur Political Nature is the first book to reveal to students the hidden roots of deeply held moral values. It shows how political orientations across space and time arise from three clusters p of measurable personality traits. These clusters entail opposing o attitudes toward tribalism, inequality, and differing perceptions of a human nature. Together, these traits are by far the most powerful h cause of left-right voting, even leading people to regularly vote c against their economic interests. a According to the author, our political personalities also influence A our likely choice of a mate, and shape societys larger reproductive o patterns. Most importantly of all, it tells the evolutionary stories of p these crucial personality traits, which stem from epic biological t conflicts. c Based on dozens of exciting new insights from primatology, B genetics, neuroscience, and anthropology, this groundbreaking g work brings core concepts to life through current news stories and w personalities. Profiles on Glenn Beck and Hugo Chavez will help p students to further understand the underlying evolutionary forces s they represent. By blending serious research with relevant t contemporary examples, Our Political Nature casts important light c onto the ideological clashes that so dangerously divide and imperil o our world today. o
Our Political Nature shows us that there are evolutionary underpinnings to our political attitudes, and that being liberal or conservative may reflect much deeper tendencies than we are inclined to think. This book is important reading for anyone trying to understand the sources of our present-day political world. Francis Fukuyama, author of The Origins of Political Order In a remarkable interdisciplinary tour de force, evolutionary anthropologist Avi Tuschman integrates findings from social psychology, genetics, and neuroscience to provide a rich understanding of the polarization in politics throughout history, and of mans inhumanity to man. In Our Political Nature he makes clear that be it vote choice or the decision to go to war, our politics are the product of the passions that drive us, which are deeply rooted in humanitys evolutionary origins.

A Message from the Author

In 2002, I found myself traveling to the far corners of Peru, visiting the countrys largest mining and energy investments for a political-risk consultancy. Peru still had fresh scars from the recent Maoist guerilla war and counterinsurgency; and the conflicts festering over the earths assets kept these ideological specters very much alive. While gathering field intelligence, I encountered an unlikely collection of movers and shakers: the CEOs of fantastically wealthy corporations, communist defense fronts, indigenous leaders, priests, and authoritarian thugs. I also saw greed, corruption, and coercion. These experiences exposed me to radically different worldviewsand to political extremism. I was riveted by how one groups notion of good represented another ones idea of evil. Since the mining and energy sector had billions of dollars at stake in the country, we also kept close tabs on the political dramas that unfolded within the national government. I grew fascinated by the story of the president and first lady, who was also a Stanford alumna and anthropologist. Soon after meeting her, I became the youngest advisor in the Palace, where I worked on indigenous peoples affairs. Eventually, I was recruited as President Toledos senior writer. In this role, I crafted articles with the seasoned statesman to shape public opinion. As we traveled around the world after his term, I had the privilege to work with numerous other presidents, and to meet prime ministers, secretaries of state, and legislators from five continents. I feel very lucky to have had some extraordinary experiences: Ive traveled in bulletproof cars and private planes. Ive eaten plates full of beetles with Indians. Ive drafted policy recommendations for eighteen former heads of state. Ive been kidnapped and nearly lynched by a rural militia. Ive been in the war room as political crises exploded, and Ive been behind the closed doors of meetings between mining CEOs, their lobbyists, and government officials. At a certain point in my career, however, I felt a calling to make sense of these experiences at a deeper levelto search for the ultimate logic behind the enormous variation in peoples political orientations. The traditional answers that Id encountered during my doctoral work hadnt completely satisfied me; I wanted to transcend the wall that political psychology seemed to be running into. So I pored over hundreds of relevant journal articles spanning across the fields of primatology, neuroscience, genetics, immunology, and evolutionary anthropology. Buried in these academic journals, dozens of illuminating findings had remained disconnected from one another. I wrote this book to be the first effort to draw together this diverse research into one single, well-documented explanation of the biological foundations of our most deeply held values. My aim, in sum, is to paint a compelling and accurate portrait of our nature as political animals. This book will provide readers with a pair of evolutionary glasses, new lenses that will help them perceive the ultimate origins of our political orientations. This view evokes a profound sense of awe by showing how the natural history of our species is intimately connected to todays news cycle and to our private lives. They will see how key evolutionary drivers and demographic trends are right now transforming the future of our country and our world. My intention here is not to take sides; it is to illuminate. It is my fervent hope that a deeper understanding of our true nature and of our relationships with others will quiet the heartand that the powerful yet elegant theory of evolution will help readers make sense of an otherwise perplexing world. Armed with that deeper understanding, perhaps we can raise the level of our political discourse and strengthen our noble democratic processes. That, at the highest level, is the mission and purpose of Our Political Nature. Avi Tuschman

A Message from the Author

Ive learned a lot from writing a book about the federal budget and the deficit for people who know these issues matter, but have never found time to finish a Wall Street Journal article on them. Here are four lessons Ive learned: Firstly, people of all walks of life are curious, but often they have been misled by smoothtalking politicians, ideologically strident bloggers, or journalists who transcribe rather than report and analyze. Theyll at least listen to a journalist who has spent a couple of decades snooping around the budget battles in Washington, who can explain things with a little bit of humor and a devotion to avoiding the forbidding jargon of Washington budgeteers. Secondly, the budget isnt too complicated for the typical Americanor college student to understand. In Red Ink, on the radio and TV, and in speeches, Ive been able to reduce the budget and todays fiscal controversies to the basics without getting bogged down in the mindnumbing details and losing the audience. Ultimately, the details are important. (Thats why the four volumes of President Barack Obamas fiscal 2014 budget run 2,509 pages.) But to understand the overarching choices the nation faces, you dont need to know those details. Thirdly, how you tell the story mattersboth inside and outside the classroom. Shortly after Red Ink was published, Washington and much of the nation was obsessed by the fiscal cliff, the one Congress and the president built to try to force themselves to do something about the federal deficit. My colleagues in the video unit at the Wall Street Journal suggested that I stand on a cliff outside Washington, D.C., to explain the situation and the underlying fiscal realities. With a bit of trepidation, I did. And it turned out that opening that video with a shot of me on a cliff drew people to a seven-minute video on the budget that they never would have otherwise watched. (Check it out here: When I spoke at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, the first questionfrom a professor, no lesswas, Where was that cliff that you stood on for the video? And finally, many Americans are somewhere between baffled by their elected representatives and repulsed by them. After I spoke to an audience of about 1,000 people at Stanford University, the moderator asked how many in the audience thought Congress was doing a good job. No one, at least no one I could see, raised his or her hand. And how many had voted for the incumbent, asked the moderator. About two-thirds raised their hands. A point well made. David Wessel
