001788: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. Review: "This is a predictable memoir of Bennett's trials and tribulations as chairperson of the National Endowment for the Humanities, secretary of the Department of Education, and directorate ("Drug Czar") of the National Drug Control Policy. The interest here is not specifically with the substance of what he said and wrote (copiously available elsewhere) but how he attempted to move insiders, bureaucrats, lobbyists, and the media to his way of thinking. Unfortunately, Bennett habitually encapsulates all issues in the liberal/conservative dichotomy. In typical blunt statements Bennett points out what he feels is right and wrong with American society and posits solutions. Conservatives (and Bennett supporters) will find this title fascinating; liberals and thinkers will find it exasperating, irritating--maybe even enlightening. The De-Valuing of America is recommended with reservations for education collections. - Scott Johnson, Meridian Community Coll. Lib., Miss.
