Final Print Issue of The Wilson Quarterly on Newsstands Now

WASHINGTON, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by The Wilson Center:

What's in store for the United States? In the Summer 2012 Wilson Quarterly, Martin Walker takes on America's doomsayers, giving the reasons why the world will live "in a future invented by America." Robert J. Samuelson takes a gloomier tack, arguing that Americans face a new era of downward mobility. Wilfred M. McClay travels back to Tocqueville's America for lessons on how to navigate an era of transition. Steven Lagerfeld puts the focus on new ways to revive opportunity.

Also in the issue:

  • The Dawn of Market Urbanism: Witold Rybczynski on why urban planning is out and market urbanism is in — and why that's good.
  • The Campaign Triumphant: Gil Troy contends that our fractious presidential campaigns are serving democracy better than ever before.
  • Beyond the Brain: Tanya Marie Luhrmann explains why hopes for a biological cure for schizophrenia have been disappointed and what new approaches are emerging.
