Pulitzer Prize winner Hedrick Smith has written a powerful, timely sequel to his classic best seller “The Power Game: How Washington Works.” His new work, WHO STOLE THE AMERICAN DREAM? steps back from the partisan fever of politics in Washington to explain how we became Two Americas – how America moved from an era of middle class prosperity and power, effective bipartisanship and grass roots activism to today’s polarized gridlock, unequal democracy and an even more unequal economy that has unraveled the American Dream for millions of middle class families. Hedrick Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning producer/correspondent, has established himself over the past 50 years of his career as one of America’s most distinguished journalists.
