On The Pursuit of Happiness: A 12-Step Program and Platform For Retrieving The American Dream his declaration is the result of much discussion in a multigenerational group of women, the youngest in their 20s, the oldest in their 70s.

Please know, however, that we do intend to finalize this “guide,” sooner than later, and go forward with a modest plan of action. Thank you, in advance, for your thoughts and reactions. We wholeheartedly welcome, and look forward to, your feedback.

Review of The Violent American Century

John W. Dower. Chicago: Haymarket. 2017
