Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum analyze globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption. They offer a way out of the trap into which the country has fallen, which includes the rediscovery of some of the most valuable traditions and the creation of a new third-party movement.
