Achieving Our Country  (1999, Harvard University Press) 3 stars

Review of 'Achieving Our Country ' on Goodreads

4 stars

A few lectures from the 1990s giving an excellent critique of how the left in America has ceded political agency and economic goals that can speak to globalization, in favor of dismay and cultural observation. His short rants about the dangers of Buchanan-ist populism and the left's willingness to let the right set the framework even for cultural debates ring very true still today, just an all around punchy call to political involvement by standing for utopian possibilities.
