Synopsis
Naomi Wolf's book, "The End of America," became a word-of-mouth phenomenon from publisher Chelsea Green. The book was on the New York Times Best Seller list for more than five months. When some enterprising students videotaped Naomi's lecture tour in support of "The End of America" and posted it on YouTube, more than a half-million people viewed and passed the video around, creating a truly grassroots movement--achieved solely by word of mouth with no outside promotion. Wolf makes a chilling case that American democracy is under grave threat. Investigating parallels between our current situation and the rise of dictators and fascism in other once-free societies, she uncovers a number of deeply unsettling similarities--from the use of paramilitary groups and secret prisons to the targeted suspension of the rule of law. With this galvanizing call to arms based on her recent book, she urges regular citizens to take back our legacy of freedom and justice.
