Posted on

Our guest this week is Morris Berman. I will update this post later tonight (hopefully before airtime) to let you know how to get a copy of Berman’s latest book, Why America Failed, while supporting The Monitor and KPFT.

Morris Berman:

Berman won the Governor’s Writers Award for Washington State in 1990, and was the first recipient of the annual Rollo May Center Grant for Humanistic Studies in 1992. He is the author of a trilogy on the evolution of human consciousness–The Reenchantment of the World (1981), Coming to Our Senses (1989), and Wandering God: A Study in Nomadic Spirituality (2000)–and in 2000 his Twilight of American Culture was named a “Notable Book” by the New York Times Book Review.

      Our shows age out of the archives after 60 days. I have a copy available that I can put up for a short time to allow you to listen to it.
