"You do not have to be a romantic to see television not only as an instrument of commerce but as a means of communication. You have only to experience it," says Moyers. Moyers's own World of Ideas PBS series has provided such experiences. A follow-up to the successful A World of Ideas ( LJ 4/15/90), this collection encompasses 29 more interviews, including conversations with writer Maxine Hong Kingston, theater director Peter Sellars, medical researcher Jonas Salk, and journalist William L. Shirer. Two interviews stand out: Toni Morrison draws us into the creation of her painful yet beautiful novels that explore the black consciousness, and poet Robert Bly examines the problems of the American male psyche, with Ronald Reagan a classic and influential case of emotional denial. Recommended for public libraries, especially where the first volume proved popular. --Judy Quinn, "Library Journal"
