With 160 entries from 'arrogance' to 'zoos', Doug Dowd's new encyclopedia puts the U.S. back in its cage. _The Broken Promises of America_ is the ultimate primer on what has gone wrong with our country. This is a must-have reference work that’s as entertaining as it is profound. From 'racism' to 'violence', from 'militarism' to 'power', Dowd’s entries provide an education by provocation. Please join Peninsula Peace and Justice Center for an engaging and fun afternoon as we honor Doug and his new book. The reception will be followed by a reading and book-signing. Doug Dowd is a political economist, indefatigable teacher, and author of many books. Z Magazine says of his work, “Doug Dowd’s long and distinguished career has been characterized by a fruitful marriage of scholarship and activism. He belongs within an indigenous American tradition of dissenting radicalism whose most famous – perhaps notorious – representatives are Thorstein Veblen and C. Wright Mills. Dowd has been an articulate and persistent critic of the American experience for more than 40 years, engaging both students and the wider public.” Free; donations to PPJC will be requested.
