Reviews

"An excellent book--and a most important one." -The New Yorker
"Mike Harrington has made more Americans more uncomfortable for more good reasons than any other person I know. For most people, that would be achievement enough. But for Mike it was only the beginning--because the more he saw that was wrong with America, the harder he fought to make it right." -Senator Edward Kennedy
The Other America is a "scream of rage, a call to conscience." -The New York Times Book Review
