WATCH: An Interview with Naomi Wolf
The End of America, A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, by Naomi Wolf, published in 2007, looked at how Bush Administration tactics paralleled steps taken in the early years of the 20th century’s worst dictatorships such as Germany, Russia, China, and Chile.
In this interview from last summer, Wolf speaks about the promises for changing the political culture that were made by Barack Obama during his campaign for the presidency, and what’s actually happened since his election.

The book and the film are available in our bookstore; separately and as a set.
