Hope Unraveled: The People's Retreat and Our Way Back
Richard Harwood, president of The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation, argues that many Americans have retreated from the public square. Though they do so reluctantly, there seems to be no other relevant choices.
In conversations spanning more than a decade in dozens of cities across the country, Harwood has found a nation struggling with growing consumerism, distorted realities, and false divisions that cut across cultural, political, and media landscapes. We can reverse this retreat, but not on out current path.
The book includes a foreword by Kettering Foundation president David Mathews.
