The Other America distils a lifetime of interest, research, and experience of an action-oriented part of the world—the United States of America. The book begins with the insights of Rudolf Steiner related to spiritual influences on this land, its people, and the important challenges they face. The author moves from the American dream and the importance of the human will in the West to the nature of evil at the turn or the twenty-first millennium.
The book features a major section on the life and work of Ralph Waldo Emerson, one of the first to point out the special characteristics of North America. This is a book for any person looking for a deeper understanding of our troubled times and our future possibilities.
