Dr. Schlesinger does a masterful job of detailing the exceptional nature of the American experiment, why it has endured, and the adolescent & intellectually dishonest philosophies that are popularly attempting to dismantle it. The philosophies themselves would be laughable had their purveyors not captured tenured chairs at some of our finest universities and been provided uncritical support and promotion by our entertainment and media establishment. I consume 25-30 audiobooks & lecture series a year and have done so for nigh 15 or so years now. This one holds an honored place near the top of that great library and is one I will return to in the fullness of time. Highly recommended.

Should absolutely be must reading for political science or journalism majors, and highly recommended for everybody.
When it was written in 1992, it might have been called "theoretical," or maybe, "it can't happen here." Unfortunately, it can, so today it's descriptive of what is happening in the US right now, and the changes to our country we can expect in not many more years unless there is a quick public realization of what is going on.
The narration is well done, and the narrative itself is very interesting, never boring. If you know an avalanche is tumbling down on us in America today and can't quite describe it, this short book might do it for you.
