Synopsis: Conversations with thoughtful men and women about American life today and the ideas shaping our future.  Bill Moyers brings us one-on-one interviews with forty-two extraordinary men and women--poets and physicists, historians and novelists, doctors and philosophers--discussing what's happening in our lives, our hearts, and our minds as we approach a new millenium.

From Library Journal: "The true conversation of democracy," says Moyers, "occurs not between politicians or pundits but across the entire spectrum of American life." This book is a compilation of the 41 interviews that Moyers conducted for his 1988 PBS TV series, an eclectic mix of authors, scientists, educators, and philosophers, including the late Barbara Tuchman on the lessons of history; Tom Wolfe on political activism on the local scale; and former New York Public Library Director Vartan Gregorian on how libraries remind one about "one's past, present, and most of the possibilities for the future." In an age of 30-second sound bites, these thoughtful discussions are welcome and important. Recommended. See also William F. Buckley's On the Firing Line: The Public Life of Our Public Figures , reviewed on p.90.
