“An excellent book—and a most important one.” –The New Yorker“Mike Harrington has made more Americans more uncomfortable for more good reasons than any other person I know. For most people, that would be achievement enough. But for Mike it was only the beginning—because the more he saw that was wrong with America, the harder he fought to make it right.” –Senator Edward KennedyThe Other America is a “scream of rage, a call to conscience.” –The New York Times Book Review
