Beschreibung

Now with a New Preface and Conclusion: "Post-Truth: On Donald Trump and the 2016 Election"
What has happened to our country and how can we fix it?
We are in the midst of a deepening crisis for our democracy. After the strangest election cycle in modern American history, it is important that we address the grave threats to our way of life that were glaringly revealed in this campaign. In The Assault on Reason, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Vice President Al Gore examines how faith in the power of reason - the idea that citizens can govern themselves through rational debate - is in peril. Our democracy depends on a well-informed citizenry and a two-way conversation about ideas, but our public sphere has been degraded by fake news and the politics of fear, partisanship, and blind faith. Now updated to investigate the rise of Trump and post-truth politics, The Assault on Reason is a call to rebuild the vitality of American democracy by restoring the nation's information ecosystem so that we can start making good decisions again.

Kritikerstimmen

"Soon the political world will be buzzing about Gore's new book...about the assault on reason. It will be a call to action against the politics of radical ideology, fear and greed that have led America into an unwise war and Washington into an era of scandal that has only begun to unfold." (The Hill)

brandaktuell

Ich habe dieses Buch 2017 gehört und die diskutierte Themen sind aktueller denn je in Zeiten des aufkeimenden Populismus. Teilweise könnte man "Bush" durch "Trump" ersetzen und das Buch neu veröffentlichen.
