THE SHAME OF THE NATION

by | Read by Harry Chase

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Examining the tough and intricate challenges of education, Kozol asks disturbing questions about the quality and equality of schools that have become essentially re-segregated in the 50 years since Brown v. Board of Education. Despite the long, complicated sentences and engaging comments dispersed throughout the book, Harry Chase navigates the text with a relaxed and welcoming tone that encourages one to follow along. Chase's talent lies in his range of tone and energy. His delivery emphasizes Kozel's essential message, and he also provides a wonderful jovial voice when quoting children. Though listeners might identify where the audiobook has been abridged, the performance and essence of Kozol's work still leave a lasting, albeit haunting, impression.
