While America Sleeps: A Wake-Up Call for the Post-9/11 Era
CHAMPION OF PROGRESSIVES AND LIBERALS, FORMER SENATOR RUSS FEINGOLD EXPLAINS FROM HIS UNIQUE VIEW WHERE AMERICA WENT WRONG AFTER 9/11 AND HOW WE CAN REVERSE OUR MISSTEPS.
Known for sticking to his convictions and revered across party lines, Russ Feingold draws extensively on his time as a member of the Senate Foregin Relations and Judiciary committees and with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to look at the failures of government in the post-9/11 era.
Feingold's hope is that when the history of this era is written, it will be said that America was taken off guard at the height of its power, then stumbled for a decade in an unfamiliar environment before ultimately finding a new national committment to unity and resolving to adapt to its new status and leadership role in the world. With echoes of Churchill and Kennedy, While America Sleeps analyzes the ten years following 9/11 and proposes solutions to the international problems that threaten our country.
