Summary note
"Drawing on the lessons of his storied career, as well as on those of history itself, Bill Moyers sounds the tocsin with a warning that the soul of democracy is dying in America, replaced increasingly by government of, by, and for a corporate ruling class. Whether reflecting on mega-media mergers that contribute to the replacement of truth-seeking with infotainment, corporate scandals that highlight the vast and growing distance between rich and poor, or political policies that have substituted casual belligerence for a careful tending to justice, Moyers on America seeks to return the conversation of democracy back to its most fundamental questions."--BOOK JACKET.
