"Against the grain of much liberal thinking . . . Reich's proposals would make a good starting point for a new progressive political project." --Michael J. Sandel, The New York Times Book Review

"Very timely . . . Reich's work is an important call for reform that should appeal to a wide audience disaffected with the status quo." --Library Journal (starred review) "Reich's lucidly defining and empowering call for revitalized civic awareness--complete with an enticing list of recommended reading and discussion guide--is an ideal catalyst for book-group conversations." --Booklist

"Clear-voiced and accessible." --Publishers Weekly "Brief but well-argued . . . a provocative essay." --Kirkus
