AFTER THE FALL Being American in the World We've Made

by | Read by Ben Rhodes

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The author's prowess as a speech writer shows in this sweeping account of why liberal democracy and America's global influence are being threatened by autocratic regimes. Rhodes, an MSNBC contributor and former Obama adviser, narrates with passion and strategic pacing that call to mind the gravity of a presidential speech. But the performance never sounds overwrought because the author's writing is personal and his vocal intensity, sincere and humble. With insights about U.S. politics and his conversations with figures like Russian dissident Alexei Nevalny in abundance, he says the U.S. and others have enabled the unfettered capitalism and tech intrusions that corrupt governments worldwide. This audiobook is a sobering look at the state of the world and a powerful plea to protect our freedoms. T.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
