From the publisher

What happened to America? Is there still hope?

We have arrived at a critical moment in American history. The United States is divided, its democracy is shaken. But all is not lost.

The remarkable fruit of two decades of research, Last Best Hope is a riveting, urgent, clear-sighted analysis of how America got here, and how it can move forward. It presents a hopeful vision for a radical reform of American life - one that enables meaningful change, via policy, legislation, executive action, civic activism, scholarship and the media. Drawing on the best of American history - what once made it great - without being trapped in the past, Last Best Hope dares America to step into a new and better era.

The thrilling new work from one of America's most incisive thinkers, Last Best Hope is a modern classic of political and societal commentary.
