9780060163365 NBC News journalist Chancellor wrote this book in "anger and frustration" over the United States' continuing inability to manage its affairs. The country has gone to hell since Kennedy's assassination, he says, with the American people let down by one ineffective President and Congress after the other. He sees the United States losing its competitive edge in technology to Japan and West Germany, bankrupting itself with deficits, letting its infrastructure rot, and abusing its human resources by miseducating its youth and not retraining its work force. Instead of a kinder, gentler America, he wants a "tougher, smarter America," with more imaginative leadership, courageous economic management (including new taxes), and a national effort, similar to that for the moon program, to put the country right again. A refreshingly honest and thoughtful book. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries. - Jeffrey R. Herold, Bucyrus P.L., Ohio Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.
