Books that have formed a necessary foundation for the deep discussions that I find myself entangled in, from time to time. I feel certain that they will further dialogues that are crucial to the ever evolving effects of democracy, on the citizens of the United States. I must admit that I’m fortunate to have been assigned many of these great works, due impart to the area of scholarship I chose to focus upon at the University of Washington. On the other hand, I’m hopeful that what you will come to read after examining the titles below. Will hopefully assist you, as you deliberate your options during the upcoming primary election, held on November 7th. Let’s dig into the stack, shall we.

A Time for Choices addresses these contemporary challenges to democracy through dialogues that expand the field of possibilities with the views of leading thinkers, educators, political analysts, activists, social innovators, clergy, journalists, philosophers, and spiritual teachers. These are the voices of the fourth branch of government, the bedrock of American democracy - the people - speaking out and questioning policy. (more).

Events of the last 12 months have led to a crisis in American values. With the passage of the so-called Patriot Act, the War Powers Act, and the presidential edict establishing military tribunals, with Congress and the major mass media championing the government party line, civil liberties and the founding democratic principles of the United States of America are in grave jeopardy. Dissent and disagreement have become "unpatriotic" and "un-American."

A Time for Choices addresses these contemporary challenges to democracy through dialogues that expand the field of possibilities with the views of leading thinkers, educators, political analysts, activists, social innovators, clergy, journalists, philosophers, and spiritual teachers. These are the voices of the fourth branch of government, the bedrock of American democracy-the people-speaking out and questioning policy. The dialogues are grouped in nine sections and include:

Reflections on 9-11: Terry Tempest Williams and Robert Fuller

What is Democracy: Kevin Danaher and Lynne Twist

The Media is the Message: Paul Hawken, Anita Roddick, and Norman Solomon

Giving Peace a Voice: Howard Zinn and Susan Griffin

The Search for Security: William McDonough and John Mohawk

The People - The 4th Branch of Government: Noam Chomsky and Amy Goodman

The Spiritual Dimension: Joanna Macy and Thomas Moore

Other Voices: As'ad Abukhalil and Tahmeena Farval

Visions of the Future: Vicki Robin and Jean Houston

The book will appeal to all seeking to understand the deeper roots of the crises facing the United States.

[...]A TIME FOR CHOICES presents a remarkably clear picture of the decisions that American citizens face following the pivotal events of September 11, 2001, as well as some visions of how Americans can help create a better America.
A TIME FOR CHOICES was compiled from a series of forty-two fascinating interviews that "New Dimensions" radio host and founder Michael Toms conducted after September 11, 2001 with people who are noteworthy for their worldly awareness and insightful commentary. Toms organizes these inspiring interviews into chapters that explore some of America's founding principles of democracy, freedom of the press, and national security. What makes A TIME FOR CHOICES really stand out as an exceptional book, however, is the fact that it also includes discussion of spiritual issues and hopeful visions of the future.
I love the way I learned things in A TIME FOR CHOICES that I have not heard of anywhere else. For example, International Law professor Francis Boyle explains why the United States is obliged to resolve its dispute with Afghanistan in a peaceful manner according to UN Charter 2(3) and Article 33, and linguist Noam Chomsky describes the importance of retaining civil liberties in America. Author and world-traveler Mark Hertsgaard shows how different American media is from international media, when for example President George Bush's statement, "You're for us or against us" made headlines in France, but was buried deep inside American news reports.
I highly recommend A TIME FOR CHOICES to everyone who wishes to see the big picture of what is really happening in America today. A TIME FOR CHOICES should be required reading for all Americans, and for anyone interested in understanding where America is headed next.

Once I began reading this I couldn't put it down. It gives me hope in the American Mind and Spirit. It's intelligent, wide ranging, provocative, mind-expanding--a rich banquet of a diversity of voices.
