Long time Steiner Show listeners may remember one of today’s guests from his last appearance on the show, July 20, 2000. Cultural historian, social critic, author, teacher, and expatriate Morris Berman joins us by phone from his current home in Mexico City at 1pm today. You can get some idea of the theme of his latest book from its title, Dark Ages America: The Final Phase of Empire.
How much time does The United States have left in its position as a world-dominating superpower? If its role were to change soon, would it be for better or for worse?
Depends who you ask, of course. Morris Berman has written a whole book discussing these questions, and more. Check out his blog here http://morrisberman.blogspot.com/
