Lou Dobbs's bestselling exposé of the silent assault on the living standards of ordinary Americans

Millions of TV viewers have known Lou Dobbs for years as the Walter Cronkite of economics coverage, and now the anchor has become the preeminent champion of the common man and the good of the national interest, who tells uncomfortable truths in a voice that can't be ignored. In this incendiary book, he presents a frontline report on the betrayal of America's middle class by interests that range from rapacious corporations to an out-of-touch political elite. The result is not only lost jobs but also dysfunctional schools and unaffordable health care. But War on the Middle Class also outlines a bold program for change. As essential as it is infuriating, this book furnishes the talking points for the national debate on income and class.

Synopsis:

'

"Preserving America" covers the dissolution of the American family, the failure of American public education, the corruption of the American government, the consolidation of the American media, the failure of the American economy, the insolvency of Social Security, the unaffordability of American healthcare, terrorism, the ecological problems which face us, and the dangers of America\'s religious prejudices.  It explains the origins of each dilemma and offers cogent solutions to our problems.

Synopsis:

Do you think America is on the right track? Are you happy with how the government handles our economy, our healthcare, Social Security, terrorism? Are you content with the performance of your public schools? If you answered "no," you’re not alone. Most polls show that over 61% of us think we're on the wrong path. "Preserving America" will allow you to investigate the ten most critical issues facing our nation with solid research and clear writing. But it will also offer you real, practical solutions to our problems, solutions you can take to your schools, your doctors, your government leaders. "Preserving America" is a self-help book for our nation, of vital importance to every thinking citizen.
