Summary
America in is crisis: unemployment, deindustrialization, and a bitter hopelessness and malaise have resulted in an epidemic of diseases of despair. Hedges believes that as our society unravels and we face global upheaval caused by catastrophic climate change, these ills presage a frightening reconfiguration of the nation and the planet. He argues that since both political parties are captured by corporate power, neither will address the systemic problems. This book is his attempt to jolt us out of our complacency while there is still time
Summary
The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of <I>War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning</I> presents a controversial examination of today's America that connects unemployment, deindustrialization and dwindling opportunities to today's rise in depression, hate and drug abuse
