Author of The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot (Chelsea Green)

This monthly series hosted by author and activist Mark Crispin Miller features authors whose books tackle political and public issues from a stance outside the mainstream.

Naomi Wolf’s first book The Beauty Myth, published in 1991, galvanized readers to stop taking media depictions of female beauty at face value. With her new book, The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, Wolf aims to have the same effect on perceptions of American democracy. Outlining ten classic steps dictators or would-be dictators always taken when they wish to close down an open society, and illustrating how each one is underway in the United States today, Wolf presents a case for the necessity of fighting to retain our hard-won freedoms. Join us for a discussion with an eminent intellectual and activist on the responsibilities of true patriotism.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
