Featured on CNN, C-SPAN, FOX News, NBC's Today Show, Democracy NOW!, News Hour with Jim Lehrer and other leading talk shows. In the late 1960s, the bipartisan Eisenhower Violence Commission, formed by President Lyndon Baines Johnson and extended by President Richard Nixon, warned that most civilizations have fallen less from external assault than from internal decay.

Harris, who advocated grassroots, populist policies when he ran for president in the 1970s. Why have American policies failed? What alternative policies can return America to its promise, internally and in the eyes of a global community shaken by, among other things, American torture and sexual humiliation of prisoners in Iraq?

Too much to expect of our civilization? This important and timely effort is published in cooperation with The Milton S. Eisenhower Foundation. From Patriotism, Democracy, and Common Se
