Description: The disparity between rich and poor in our immensely wealthy nation and the corrupting influence of money on politics to the advantage of the few over the many form the heart of this critical review of the American presidency during the last half of the 20th century. Friedenberg emphasizes that the New Deal concern for the underdog has been gradually abandoned by presidents in the latter half of the century. Though paying lip service to democracy, in fact recent presidents have upheld a system designed to maximize the influence of a powerful elite.

Friedenberg pleads for a new focus on improved education for all to narrow the widening gap between rich and poor. The vast technological resources unleashed by the computer revolution can and should be used to create a more equitable American future.
