Synopses & Reviews
As the practice of democracy becomes a lost art, Americans are becoming increasingly desperate for a restored nation. Many have a general sense that the "system" is in disorder, if not on the road to functional collapse. Although it is easy to identify our political problems, the solutions are not always as clear. In Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries, bestselling author Naomi Wolf illustrates the breathtaking changes that can take place when ordinary citizens engage in the democratic system the way the founders intended and tells you how to use that system, right now, to change your life, your community, and ultimately the nation.
From an icon in the contemporary feminist movement and a well-respected political commentator comes this clear, accessible handbook about how to understand and use democracy.
