Praised by the New York Timesfor his ferocious moral vision, Cornel West returns to the analysis of what he calls the arrested development of democracy with a masterful diagnosis. Pointing to the rise of three antidemocratic dogmas that are rendering the energy of American democracy impotenta callous free-market fundamentalism, an aggressive militarism, and an insidious authoritarianismWest argues that racism and imperial bullying have gone hand in hand in our countrys inexorable drive toward world dominance, including our current militaristic excesses. This impassioned and empowering call for the revitalization of Americas democracy, by one of our most distinctive and compelling social critics, will reshape the raging national debate about Americas role in todays troubled world.
