THE THIRTEEN AMERICAN ARGUMENTS Enduring Debates That Inspire and Define Our Country

by | Read by Scott Sowers

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

"We are the arguing country, born in and born to debate." This is Howard Fineman's argument. The NEWSWEEK columnist sees silence--the lack of argument about the Iraq War, for example--as dangerous and regards political clashes as healthy and vital. He makes his point by linking current issues--immigration, the War on Terror, the increased power of the presidency, and the Vermont secession campaign, to name a few--to historical events and arguments. Scott Sowers gives Fineman's arguments a no-nonsense tone that is tough enough to take on the TV talking heads and their opinions. Giving voice to Fineman's research and thoughtful points, Sowers's narration is compelling. Fineman's aim is to get people talking--and arguing--about what our nation needs, and he succeeds.
