He's also funny as hell, and in this book he focuses his sharp Texas wit, populist passion, and native smarts on America's political, economic, scientific, and media establishments. In There's Nothing in the Middle of the Road But Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos, Hightower shows not only what's wrong, but also how to fix it, offering specific solutions and calling for a new political movement of working families and the poor to "take America back from the bankers and bosses, the big shots and bastards." "If you don't read another book about what's wrong with this country for the rest of your life, read this one. I think it's the best and most important book about out public life I've read in years."--Molly Ivins, author of Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She' "When do we get to vote for Jim Hightower for president' Will somebody please tell me' When do we get to vote for Jim Hightower for president'."--Michael Moore, author of Downsize This! "Listen to Jim Hightower. His is a two-fisted, rambunctious voice unafraid to speak truth to power, eloquently and clearly ... He's one of the best."--Studs Terkel

Bill Moyers journal. writer Barry Lopez( Visual )

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. An introduction to the new public affairs program Need to know and a heartfelt thank-you to all who have made Bill Moyers journal a success conclude the program ... and the series
