What does it mean to be an engaged American in today's divided political landscape, and how do we restore hope in our country? In this Washington State Book Award winning collection of "civic sermons" he delivered around the nation, Eric Liu takes on such thorny questions, advocating for active citizenship and offering inspiration and solace in a time of anger, fear, and dismay over the state of the Union. Writing in the New York Times, David Brooks called the book "a penetrating time-lapse movie of the American mind…. [Liu's] great contribution is to show how to mix conviction on racial matters with humility and gentleness … pushing toward a national story large enough to contain all the hybrid voices."
