Book Review: Deepening the American Dream Edited by Mark Nepo

Reflections on the Inner Life and Spirit of Democracy

Deepening the American Dream
Jossey-Bass, 2005, 265 pages, $24.95

This book is a symposium of leading writers, philosophers, historians, and thinkers—all examining the spiritual aspects of what it means to be American, and what “America” means. In the midst of a glut of materialism, governance by adolescent leadership, and retreat from human engagement, these writers examine the founding values of the country, the course we have taken to get here, and how we can look to wisdom traditions—our own and others—to articulate a more fully adult and inclusive vision of an American dream.
