CRITICAL PRAISE FOR BARLETT AND STEELE

“They are almost certainly the best team in the history of investigative reporting.”
Washington Journalism Review

“Instead of just reporting still unproven accusations and focusing on individual corruption, [they reveal] with expert analysis and thorough documentation what has systematically gone wrong with the powerful, complex institutions that affect so much of life today.”
—Leonard Downie, Jr., author of The New Muckrakers: An Inside Look at America’s Investigative Reporters

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR AMERICA: WHAT WENT WRONG?

“Once or twice in a generation, the American people are jolted by a book that helps bring about major change. America: What Went Wrong. . . is a monumental achievement. . . ”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Barlett and Steele have incisively and vividly defined the problem facing the nation. . . ”
The New York Times

America: What Went Wrong? probably is the most complete and revealing piece of reporting since turn-of-the-century muckrakers shocked the nation with descriptions of inhuman working conditions and big city political machines.”
Maine Sunday Telegram

“It is easy to see why America: What Went Wrong? is quite simply some of the best American news reporting in years. . . The authors have done a great service to the public by accumulating all this vital information in such a clear and simple manner.”
—Boston Phoenix
