During the fifty years he has been variously a reporter, a political spokesperson, and a broadcaster, Bill Moyers has demonstrated a deep commitment to understanding the workings of our government and the role of the individual in society. His essays and commentaries, such as the recent “Shivers Down the Spine,” “A Time for Anger,” and “Journalism Under Fire,” are argued over and passed along as soon as they appear in print or on the Internet. Identifying what he sees as a political system increasingly at the mercy of a corporate ruling class, he urges a reengagement with the spirit of community that makes the work of democracy possible. Not only a trenchant critique of what is wrong, Moyers on America is also a call to arms for the progressive promise of the people of America, in whom his faith is strong.

“Sensible and persuasive. . . . [Moyers is] a very decent man and excellent journalist whose incisive, rational observations we need right now.” –St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Nothing short of an aroused public can change things, nothing less than democracy is at stake.” –Bill Moyers

“Bill Moyers speaks for, and to, the conscience of our nation.” –Walter Cronkite

“Honorable. . . . Heroic. . . . A bracing read.” –Austin American-Statesman

“Bill Moyers believes with his very heart-bone in the interchange of ideas, in individuals speaking out. . . . And he is, in a very real sense, a man of faith: of faith in America.” –The New York Times
