What is really happening to America? Read this book to find out. This inveterate journalist quotes historical fact and current data to tell s critical story. Having read this book, I consider myself reawakened to modern reality, and realize I must help do something about it.

What made the experience of listening to The Retreat of Western Liberalism the most enjoyable?
OK, it is largely because he thinks about current events as I do,that I think he did a great job. But, he is a much clearer & deeper explainer of the reasons we are where we are in 2017, than I could ever hope to be.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
A good but not pedantically deep history of Western Liberalism and the social & economic bases of modern society. His story, to this student but not expert of history (me), rings true and his vantage point appears valuable
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
The important point is his contribution to the understanding of how the liberal establishment lost and is still losing the working middle class citizens of the US and of Europe. That loss has been too easily dismissed as racism, rather than delving into the larger, deeper engines of that segment's dissatisfaction and the possible remedies.
Any additional comments?
A couple hours well spent.
