Adrift: Charting Our Course Back to a Great Nation
William C. Harris and Steven C. Beschloss

What has gone wrong for America and what can we do about it? Americans have begun to wonder whether our best days are ahead of us or are now past. Yet at a time of clear urgency and grave need, the nation's politicians seem increasingly unable to get beyond ideological battles and provide genuine leadership. Is this any way to run a great country?

"Compared with other times in our history, there is now more reason to wonder whether America can take the steps that would lead it back toward a path of innovation, opportunity, solvency, and promise. William Harris and Steven Beschloss do a systematic and convincing job of showing how Americans can make these changes-and what will happen if we don't."
- James Fallows, national correspondent of the Atlantic

"Adrift is a wake-up call for Congress and President Obama."
- Ernest (Fritz) Hollings, former US senator South Carolina

"Adrift is a tour de force of the economic and social changes the United States is facing."
- Erich Bloch, former director National Science Foundation
