Bill Moyers Journal: The Conversation Continues Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This “provocative” and “absorbing” (Star Tribune) companion book to Bill Moyers acclaimed PBS series invites readers into conversations with some of the most captivating voices on the scene today, in what Kirkus calls “a glittering array of discussions.” From Jon Stewart on politics and media to Michael Pollan on food, The Wire creator David Simon on the mean streets of our cities, James Cone and Shelby Steele on race in the age of Obama, Robert Bly and Nikki Giovanni on the power of poetry, Barbara Ehrenreich on the hard times of working Americans, and Karen Armstrong on faith and compassion, Moyers own intelligence and insight match that of his guests and their discussions animate many of the most salient issues of our time.

With extensive commentary from Moyers, marked by his customary “respect, intelligence, curiosity, humor, and graciousness” (Booklist), here are the debates; cultural currents; and, above all, lively minds that shape the conversation of democracy.
