Summary
In 1947, Forbes magazine declared Lancaster, Ohio, the epitome of the all-American town. Today it is damaged, discouraged, and fighting for its future. In Glass house, journalist Brian Alexander uses the story of one town to show how seeds sown thirty-five years ago have sprouted to give us Trumpism, inequality, and an eroding national cohesion."--Jacket flap
Summary
Traces the downfall of once-idyllic Lancaster, Ohio, exploring how the financial problems of primary employer Anchor Hocking Glass Company and the challenges of local corruption, the drug trade and evolving technologies have illuminated the vulnerabilities of inequality in rural America
