Enter to win an advance copy of Rebuilding an Enlightened World: Folklorizing America where Bill Ivey explores how folklore offers a unique and compelling new way to understand the underlying forces disrupting the world today.
Today, the long-assumed belief in the permanence of an enlightened world is suddenly open to challenge. To understand and counteract the threat to these ideas, we must set aside embedded explanations and embrace a new frame of observation and tolerance grounded in the power of belief, legend, and tradition.
Neera Tanden, President and CEO, Center for American Progress says “Rebuilding an Enlightened World presents progressives in America with an invaluable vision on how we can defeat the rising forces of authoritarianism and tribalism by relying on our reason and our shared values. Bill Ivey’s powerful book lays out a path for drawing upon our traditions, customs, and rich cultural heritage to help forge a brighter future—for our own country, and for people across the globe.”
