David Callahan examines recent moral changes in various sectors of American life. With a strong baritone, Richard M. Davidson clearly communicates the author's contempt for what has gone wrong in our nation. Rather than blaming a decline in religious belief, Callahan places most of the blame for the changing American character on the unbounded greed of capitalism as practiced in the late twentieth century. What he terms "hyper-capitalism" has helped to undermine levels of society from the legal and medical to the running of corporations. Callahan's hope for a better future hinges on less unregulated capitalism and more solidarity. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
