520    The American Dream that crystallized around James Truslow 
       Adams' The Epic of America originally formulated in the 
       early 1930s and was conditioned by a decade of complexity 
       and contradiction, of big government projects, intensely 
       fierce nationalism, the definition of the American way, 
       and a distinctive collection of American iconic narratives
       has had the power and force to successively reshape 
       America for every new generation. Indeed, Adam's dream of 
       opportunity for each according to ability or achievement 
       shaped against the old class culture of Europe emphasizes 
       a vision of social order in which each person can succeed 
       despite their social origins. Barack Obama, a skillful 
       rhetorician and intelligent politician, talks of restoring
       the American and has used its narrative resources to 
       define his campaign and his policies. In a time of 
       international and domestic crisis, of massive sovereign 
       debt, of the failure of neoliberalism, of growing 
       inequalities, the question is whether the American Dream 
       and the vision of an equal education on which it rests can
       be revitalized.
