"This collection of essays addresses the question of how the American dream helps maintain a stable society into the 21st century, despite the fact that the dream is (and always has been) inaccessible to a large percentage of the population, perhaps a majority... The authors point out how the dream builds a patriotic sense that the US is unique and superior, and anyone who suggests otherwise risks isolation. A politician who questions the dream may be committing career suicide. Summing Up: Recommended." Choice, February 2012
