Description
With a Senate career that has spanned more than four decades, Edward M. Kennedy has become one of the strongest voices in American politics. In this, his first major policy book in more than twenty years, he argues that America is at a crossroads, having departed more deeply from its fundamental ideals than at any time in its modern history. In response to this erosion of basic values, he presents a sweeping agenda for reform and renewal, speaking to the country's most significant needs at home and abroad. National security, the war in Iraq, terrorism, and key domestic challenges such as jobs, health care, education, civil rights, energy, and the environment all receive major attention in his proposals to counter the harmful policies of the current administration, restore America's respect in the world, and create a better America here at home where democracy, individual opportunity, equal justice, and innovation can flourish.--From publisher description.The four-decade senator contends that the United States has stepped away from its basic ideals and proposes changes to national security, health care, education, civil rights, energy, and the environment.
