Hi all,

I've just submitted for proofing "Come Home, America: The Rise and Fall and
Redeeming Promise of Our Country" by William Greider.

It's been read through and corrected. Headers stripped; chapter titles and
page numbers present and protected. Ranked spelling over 99.8% with lots of
proper names and jargon. 328 pages.

From the book jacket:
"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present," Abraham
Lincoln once declared." The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we
must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so must we think anew, and
act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves and then we shall save our country."
His words are from 1862, when the Civil War was in its second year and
already more terrible than expected. I think we are in a roughly similar
place, without a great war to focus our energies. The "stormy present" has
begun and it will become harsher and more confusing. But if we think anew,
we can save the country.
Come home, America. Instead of trying to run the world, let us tend our own
wounded society. Let go of inflated claims to global dominance. Instead,
redeem the fundamental values and sacred principles of the national
inheritance. Do not resign from the world. Rejoin it on more practical and
promising terms.
