1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The final edition of the Journal begins by examining the new populism: after a report on Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, proud and vocal inheritors of America's populist spirit, Bill Moyers sits down with populist agitator Jim Hightower to look at the history and legacy of people's movements and to discuss how ordinary people can reclaim their political power. Then, Moyers is joined by the award-winnng writer Barry Lopez to discuss nature, spirit, and the human condition. Through novels, essays, articles, and stories -- and collaborations with musicians, playwrights, photographers, and artists -- Lopez has arguably become the messenger of America's ecological unconscious.
