This book is for those of us who want a variety of opinions, for those of us who want to understand the issues more deeply and make up our own minds." from the Introduction Spiritual Perspectives on America s Role as Superpowerinvites you to explore these essential questions with sixteen of today s most profound religious and spiritual teachers.
