Unpaid Annotation
Former California governor Jerry Brown continues to be one of the most insightful, provocative, and truthful voices in American politics. In a career spanning more than three decades, he has fought for a progressive social and economic agenda, re-evaluating and attacking the entrenched ideas and institutions that threaten individual freedom, the peace of nations, and the survival of the planet.Dialogues, his first book, is a collection of personal conversations -- exploratory, thoughtful, passionate and richly anecdotal -- between Brown and 22 of the men and women whose ideas and work have shaped his vision. Exploring such issues as political reform, globalization, criminal justice, the environment, the arts and spirituality, this is a book that, as Brown argues, can "wake people up" to conditions that are destroying our society and our world, and to alternative ways of being that can assure a healthy, just and sustainable future.
