For his first book since the bestselling Sleepwalking Through History, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist interviewed grassroots Americans from New England to the Sunbelt, from the heartland to the West Coast. Over nearly two yrs, Haynes Johnson listened as businessmen, judges, youth gang members, new citizens, and illegal aliens, students and farmers, teachers and lawyers expressed their deepest hopes and fears. The same concerns kept surfacing; jobs, crime, race, schools, values and leadership. By contrasting the aspirations of people across the country with the inner workings of Washington during Bill Clinton's fist yr as president, Divided We Fall illuminates a critical test of the American character. The result is an unforgettable portrait of a people disconnected from their government, yearning for change but acutely aware of the hard choices facing the nation as we prepared for the 21st century. Through these narratives is the conviction that America is still "the best country", one that can and will prevail despite its flaws and fragmentation. The author urges us to join together and face the challenge of change, and reclaim the American Dream.
