The book (Clarity Press) is 465 pages in length, available in either paperback or Kindle formats, and can be obtained from leading booksellers, including Amazon. It attempts to blend my personal and political engagements in an overall search for why I departed from the worldview and commitments of those with whom I shared a class, ethnic, and educational background in urban USA.”

“Richard Falk is one of the few great public intellectuals and citizen pilgrims who has preserved his integrity and consistency in our dark and decadent times.”
— Dr. Cornel West
