Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Homeland is Pulitzer Prize winning author Maharidge's biggest and most ambitious book yet, weaving together the disparate and contradictory strands of contemporary American society-common decency alongside racerage, the range of dissenting voices, and the roots of discontent that defy political affiliation. Here are American families who can no longer pay their medical bills, who've lost high-wage-earning jobs to NAFTA. And hereare white supremacists who claim common ground with progressives. Maharidge's approach is rigorously historical, creating a tapestry of today as it is lived in America, a self-portrait that is shockingly different fromwhat we're used to seeing and yet which rings of truth.

Synopsis:

A insightful portrait of contemporary American society by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist weaves together contradictory threads such as common decency existing alongside race rage and the various dissenting voices in America. 15,000 first printing.
