THE GEPHARDT LIBRARY:

An Even Better PlaceAn Even Better Place: America in the 21st Century by Richard Gephardt (1999). This book was originally intended to set the tone for Congressman Gephardt's 2000 Presidential campaign -- a race Gephardt never ultimately entered. Still, the book remains in print and spells out his concerns. Although he does have specific recommendations in areas like public education and international trade, Gephardt's main theme is one of reinvigorating what he sees as the two main components of liberalism: community activism and citizen participation. His goal is to move away from the destructive politics of personal attacks and reassert an active commitment to fulfilling values and ideals. He lays out his ideas -- formulated through three decades in the political process -- in a clear, straightforward style. "Democracy and freedom depend upon all kinds of citizen participation. Without it, they will die -- maybe sooner, maybe later, but they will die," he wrote. It may not be very exciting, but it does clearly set forth his reasons for running on the issues Gephardt most cares about. Price: $25.00.
