"Studs" Terkel (1912 – 2008) was an American author, historian, actor, and Chicago broadcaster. He received the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1985 for The Good War, and is valued for his oral histories of common Americans.
"Here is the America we are all living through: The America of yuppies, Wall Street greed, right-wing fundamentalism, Reaganite values, Sixties activists who have become stockbrokers and real-estate speculators. Here at the same time is the Other America: The backers of the Sanctuary Movement, the obstinate liberals, the teachers still fighting the good fight. Here, too, are all those caught in the middle, the people who have seen the changes, but who hesitate to transform their inner lives"--publisher's blurb
