About the Author

Barbara Ehrenreich (1941-2022) was a bestselling author and political activist, whose more than a dozen books included Nickel and Dimed, which the New York Times described as a classic in social justice literature, Bait and Switch, Bright-sided, This Land Is Their Land, Dancing In The Streets, and Blood Rites. An award-winning journalist, she frequently contributed to Harper's, The Nation, The New York Times, and TIME magazine.

Reviews

"Provocative, angry and funny, often at the same time." - Kirkus Reviews

"Ehrenreich's vicious, hilarious and striking tour de force of American culture and society today addresses a range of issues from class warfare to health care, higher education to feminism to religious institutionalization and political power. She weighs in with wit, clarity and authority that few authors can match." - Publishers Weekly

"The cliché that you laugh until you cry takes on new meaning when reading This Land is Their Land. Incisive, trenchant and furious, it celebrates the have-nots. At the same time, it asks an important question: What will it take for America's beleaguered residents to rise up and say, 'Enough'?" - The Indypendent
