Show 820  Coming Apart  The State of White America, 1960-2010  Written by Charles Murray

 

Synopsis of Book

From the bestselling author of Losing Ground and The Bell Curve, this startling long-lens view shows how America is coming apart at the seams that historically have joined our classes.

 

In Coming Apart, Charles Murray explores the formation of American classes that are different in kind from anything we have ever known, focusing on whites as a way of driving home the fact that the trends he describes do not break along lines of race or ethnicity.

 

Drawing on five decades of statistics and research, Coming Apart demonstrates that a new upper class and a new lower class have diverged so far in core behaviors and values that they barely recognize their underlying American kinship—divergence that has nothing to do with income inequality and that has grown during good economic times and bad.

 

The top and bottom of white America increasingly live in different cultures, Murray argues, with the powerful upper class living in enclaves surrounded by their own kind, ignorant about life in mainstream America, and the lower class suffering from erosions of family and community life that strike at the heart of the pursuit of happiness. That divergence puts the success of the American project at risk.

 

The evidence in Coming Apart is about white America. Its message is about all of America.

Show 816 The Deadliest Lies: The Israel Lobby and the Myth of Jewish Control. Author: Abraham Foxman

 Abraham Foxman argues that the power of the Israel Lobby in the U.S. has been exaggerated and that recent criticisms of Israel by President Jimmy Carter and others are misleading and dangerous.  Mr. Foxman spoke about his new book at Barnes and Noble Booksellers in New york City.

About the Author

Abraham Foxman is the director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the author of "Never Again?: The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism." 

About the Book - In a post-9/11 era of international tension and heightened suspicion, the American Jewish community has found itself having to respond to charges that it stifles free speech, has divided loyalties, and is responsible for pushing the United States into the war in Iraq.

 The essay by John J. Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen M. Walt of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard on “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy” and the 2006 book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid by former President Jimmy Carter have lent an alarming veneer of credibility to these accusations, which are little more than paranoid fantasies that reinforce persistent, anti-Semitic myths. 

In The Deadliest Lies: The Israel Lobby and The Myth of Jewish Control (Palgrave Macmillan, September 2007), Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, reveals these ideas for the falsehoods they are.  In particular, he demolishes the claims of an all powerful Israel Lobby and a global Jewish conspiracy, revealing their historic roots in the most virulent forms of bigotry.  He shows how hateful anti-Semitic stereotypes are once again resurfacing and becoming dangerously mainstream.  From Jimmy Carter to Mearsheimer and Walt, he addresses head-on the public figures who irresponsibly inspire these ideas and unfairly single out Jews for criticism.

 Eloquently argued and refreshingly nuanced, this book adds a much-needed voice of reason to public debates about Israel and American Judaism.

 From the Foreword by former U.S. Secretary of State George P. Shultz:

“Jewish groups are influential.  They also largely agree that the United States should support Israel. But the notion that these groups have anything like a uniform agenda, and that U.S. policy on Israel and the Middle East is the result of their influence, is simply wrong.”

 Praise for The Deadliest Lies from:

 • Ambassador Dennis Ross, former American envoy to the Arab-Israeli peace process and author of Statecraft;

 • Charles Hill, Distinguished Fellow in International Security Studies, Yale University;

 • Robert Satloff, Executive Director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and author of Among the Righteous;

 • Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel and

 • Martin Peretz, Editor in Chief of The New Republic.
