More Like Us: Making America Great Again

By James Fallows

Houghton Mifflin, 1989, 235 pp.

A stimulating and readable essay on American culture. The author is an American journalist who has reported from Asia for the past three years. He argues that Americans must not become more like the Japanese, but more like themselves-with more opportunity and mobility, and less regimentation. His criticism of standardized tests to place people in school and job is particularly good.
