Advance Praise for Escaping Plato's Cave
"[Mort Rosenblum's] most intense, detailed, and certainly most passionate book. I read it with pleasure and felt enlightened. . . . It is bitterly funny as well as powerful."
--Paul Theroux, author of Dark Star Safari
"A great foreign correspondent draws on forty years of travels and experiences to paint a vivid picture of how America is falling short of its highest values and crippling its global leadership."
--James F. Hoge, Jr., editor, Foreign Affairs
"This has to be the greatest ticket a boy yearning to see the world could ever dream of: forty years as a foreign correspondent for the Associated Press, your feet touching the soil of a hundred countries, the stomach-tingling thrill of being on deadline with you every single moment of those four decades. What a journey. What a reporter. What a life."
--Bob Greene, author of And You Know You Should Be Glad
"This chilling, anguished account of how badly we are served by the journalism establishment, which ignores the flaws of our leaders and indulges the national optimism in the face of reality, could perhaps only be written by an insider with Rosenblum's experience, and the perspective of someone who understands other societies. I hope his news is heard."
--Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce
