The Irony of American History (Scribner Library of Contemporary Classics)

The Irony of American History (Scribner Library of Contemporary Classics) - Reinhold Niebuhr Astounding in it's prescience. The danger of failing to heed Niebuhr's prophetic words is as great today, if not greater, than when he wrote in the opening years of the Cold War.

His economic analysis of internal dynamics of rich and poor within the Western system couldn't be more timely.
