Über diesen Titel:


Destined to incite controversy and conversation
from the White House to your own house, the 250 best insights on improving our country--from the editors of George magazine

250 Ways to Make America Better is a selection of essays, cartoons, thoughts, and poems from an all-star cast of Americans. From Ice T to Isaac Stern, Joan Rivers to Rob Reiner, Stephen Ambrose to Mo Vaughn, 250 writers, humorists, entertainers, educators, executives, and, yes, even politicians all say how they would make America better. Radio commentator David Brudnoy maintains that politicians should be forced to be celibate for their entire terms of office; rap titan Sean "Puffy" Combs stresses the importance of the presence of God in American life; cartoonist Roz Chast draws a triptych suggesting we should blow up all the shopping malls, send a certain outspoken conservative into outer space, and bring back chocolate-flavored Life Savers. The political voices in the book run the gamut from William F. Buckley, Jr., to Senator John McCain, from Dr. Joycelyn Elders to Dick Armey. Part inspiration, part information, this book is a fascinating, humorous, and revealing look at the endless possibilities for im
proving life in America.

Rezension: Brought together under the aegis of hip political magazine George, 250 famous citizens of the United States share their thoughts on how to make the country a better place. Some of the proposals are succinct, such as rap superstar Puffy Combs's call for "the presence of God in the lives of more Americans." Other contributors, like political analyst Dick Morris or entertainer Connie Stevens, have entire wish lists. (And yes, that's's own Jeff Bezos, squeezed between Senator John McCain and John McLaughlin, urging parents to read--and discuss--the Declaration of Independence with their children.) Some of the sharpest work comes from the cartoonists, including Ted Rall, Roz Chast, Tom Tomorrow, Dan Piraro, and Tom Toles. And then there are the satirists--Eric Bogosian's suggestion to detonate some nukes to give America a transformative "near-death experience" is probably the most outrageous, though Michael Moore's insistence that corporations should fire their employees and rely on cheap prison labor is a strong runner-up. The mixture of thoughtful and silly responses in 250 Ways to Make America Better provides a unique snapshot of the concerns of U.S. citizens at the end of the 20th century.
