Another Day in the Death of America | Who Are We-And Should It Matter in the 21st Century? | No Place Like Home
Black, opinionated, and with a distinctly working-class London accent, Gary Younge is not your typical foreign correspondent. Yet, in three years as The Guardian newspaperâs New York correspondent, Younge has acquired a transatlantic reputation as one of the most thoughtful commentators on contemporary America. Combining insight and panache, he has precisely captured the intricacies of a nation perplexed at its growing isolation from the rest of the world and often bitterly divided against itself.
In these pages we listen in on expansive discussions with, among others, Warren Beatty, Michael Moore, Louis Farrakhan, Susan Sontag, and Maya Angelou. We take the stage with an extravagantly attired drag queen in John Ashcroftâs hometown, join the dinner table of a fundamentalist Republican who has just lost his son in the Iraq war, and ride a bus with a group of Guatemalan strawberry pickers on a latter-day Freedom Ride to Washington, D.C. Throughout we are in the company of a guide whose restless curiosity is framed with sharp political intelligence.
This edition also contains China and the French Revolution: Proceedings of the International Conference, Shanghai, 18-21 March 1989
About: Profiles contemporary America as a bitterly divided nation that is increasingly isolated from the rest of the world, in an account that includes discussions with such figures as Warren Beatty, Michael Moore, and Maya Angelou.
