Synopsis of Second-Rate Nation: From the American Dream to the American Myth

Sociologist and historian Sieber retired from Columbia University then spent 30 years homesteading on a Caribbean island. In this, his first book since he returned to the US in 1999, he documents how the country has slid from greatness into mediocrity in such a short time. The economy, work, health, education, crime, the environment, foreign affairs, inequality, civil liberties, the media corporations, and democracy come under his scrutiny. A final chapter suggests recovery measures. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
