Derber argues that the current regime is destroying the American dream by outsourcing millions of jobs, turning American employment into a ''one - night stand,'' undermining the security that created the American middle class, and turning the forces of law against citizens.

"Charles Derber is one of our most astute and eloquent social critics, and in this book he gives us a powerful argument for bringing the Bush regime to an end and also looking beyond that. His political analysis is persuasive, and is enlivened by graceful prose, all aimed with perfect timing at the upcoming presidential election." -Howard Zinn
"This is a badly needed book. A great many people are deeply disturbed by the drift of events and policy, and rightly ask what they can do that is important enough to matter. Derber aims directly at the very heart of the problems of illegitimate authority, reveals its workings and grim consequences with clarity, insight, and understanding, and lays out a practical and feasible course of action to create a far more free and democratic society that offers real hope for decent survival." -Noam ChomskyAbout the Author:
