Anne-Marie Slaughter urges us to confront the questions of, “Where is the United States going in the world? How can we get there? What are the guiding stars that will illuminate the path along the way?”

Mark Mykleby writes that the complexity, competition, and interconnectedness of a new century require a fresh perspective on the U.S.' enduring goals of prosperity and security and that our current path is simply unsustainable. Over time, the best way to shape the force of the future is to invest in the science, technology, education, and training. Mark Mykleby is interviewed by Terrence McNally who is a radio host (KPFK 90.7fm in LA, WBAI 99.5fm in NY), featured journalist at Alternet.org.

What is America?

Allan Gregg interviews Ronald Wright who is a Canadian author of travel, history and fiction. America is the world's only superpower, but how did it get there? In a provocative new book, Ronald Wright contends that right from its start as a frontier society, America has used militarism and religious extremism to expand and prosper. Wright is the bestselling author of A Short History of Progress. His new book is What is America? A Short History of the New World Order.
