    Is that why people from all over the world want to immigrate
    specifically to the U.S. When they do, do they automatically become
    evil? Or their children?

    Do you teach in the social sciences? Consider my SAYING NO TO POWER 
    (Creative Arts, Berkeley, 1999), for course use. It was written as a
    social history of
    the U.S. for the past three-quarters of a century through the eyes of a
    observer in most progressive social movements (I'm 83), and of the USSR
    from the
    standpoint of a Sovietologist (five earlier books) knowing that country
    longer than any
    other in the profession. Therefore it is also a history of the Cold War.
    Positive reviews
    in The Black Scholar, American Studies in Scandinavia, San Francisco
    forthcoming in Tikkun, etc.
