Reviews

"A top-notch addition to the why-America-is-in-such-a-mess genre. . . . A tour de force exploration of why America got better and then went into reverse."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
"America's deep-seated divisions were healed in the past and can be again, argues this sweeping and persuasive study. . . . This fresh, ambitious take on America's fraying social fabric will provoke much discussion."-- "Publishers Weekly"
