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'état 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.
