Rarely has our country been so divided as now, with ideologues at both ends of the political spectrum denouncing compromise and cooperation in a super-heated election. Amid the vitriol, Dionne's thoughtful analysis of our history and its implications provides a breath of sanity. Narrator Michael Kramer's pleasing baritone and evenly paced delivery augment Dionne's accessible writing style. As current discourse and behavior migrate toward the rough end of the playground, some constructive adult intervention seems called for, and Kramer sounds very much the grown-up as he presents Dionne's reasoned discussion of previous political upheavals. This timely offering provides politicos the opportunity to take a deep breath and proceed with some historical perspective and an intelligent examination of the polarizing issues.
