America: the Farewell Tour

Author(s): Chris Hedges


Is America in a state of irrevocable decline? In this provocative and disturbing examination of our country, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges argues that the United States shows unmistakable signs of a dying culture. America's social fabric is unraveling, while at the same time we face global upheaval caused in part by catastrophic climate change. These ills presage a frightening reconfiguration of the nation and the planet. Donald Trump rode our national discontent to power. In America: The Farewell Tour, Hedges argues that neither political party, both now captured by corporate power, will address our systemic problem. Until our corporate coup d'├ętat is reversed, our problems will grow and ravage the country. A poignant cry reported from communities across the country, America: The Farewell Tour seeks to jolt us out of our complacency while there is still time to take action. Book jacket.
