The End of America and The End of America the Movie: Set
In a stunning indictment of the Bush administration and Congress, best-selling author Naomi Wolf lays out her case for saving American democracy with The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot. In authoritative research and documentation Wolf explains how events of the last six years parallel steps taken in the early years of the 20th century’s worst dictatorships such as Germany, Russia, China, and Chile.
The book cuts across political parties and ideologies and speaks directly to those among us who are concerned about the ever-tightening noose being placed around our liberties.
Expertly crafted by award-winning filmmakers Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern (The Trials of Darryl Hunt, The Devil Came on Horseback), The End of America is a provocative film based on he New York Times best seller by the same name. Naomi Wolf (The Beauty Myth) makes a chilling case that American democracy is under threat through a stunning indictment of sweeping policy changes made during the Bush years that have greatly limited individual liberties while increasing the power of government.
