Old Glory still flies, and yet some believe that she doesn’t stand for what she used to. Are our days as a superpower numbered? Are our challenges stacked against us? Will we fade into obscurity in an ever increasingly globalized world? What can we do to overcome our collective challenges? These kinds of questions are analyzed in Lament for America—written by FHSS professor of political science Earl Fry. Professor Fry has published eight books on revitalizing government, restoring prosperity, and restructuring foreign affairs. He was a Fulbright Senior Specialist for the U.S. Department of State in 2014, and a Fulbright Bicentennial Chair in American Studies at the University of Helsinki in 2012, He’s published articles and chapters in more than 50 American, Canadian, German, and French journals and books. Join him in discussing the answers to these questions!
