Publisher Comments:

“In Homeland, Maharidge breaks new ground in the genre of 9/11 journalism by heading into heartland America . . . . The tales Maharidge relates expose the synergy between economics and racism in Rust Belt communities, whose residents are the victims of post-industrial collapse and what he describes as a ‘30-year war against the working class.’”—In These Times

“This book emerges as a sensitive, heartfelt examination of a wounded America whose wounds existed long before the terrorist attacks.”—Publishers Weekly

“A unique and insightful look at how America changed after the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001, and what it means for the future.”—The Sacramento Bee

Homeland is the fourth book from the Pulitzer Prize-winning team of Dale Maharidge and photographer Michael Williamson. Maharidge offers an original and provocative thesis: 9/11 was not a genesis, but an amplifier of unease that had long been building in the United States. A complete picture of post-9/11 America, Maharidge argues, is not simply a picture of post-9/11 America, but a complicated portrayal taking into account deep-seated tensions, some going back three decades and more.

Dale Maharidge and Michael Williamson’s Journey To Nowhere (1985) was the inspiration for two songs on Bruce Springsteen’s album The Ghost of Tom Joad. Their second book, And Their Children After Them, won the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction. The two also co-authored The Last Great American Hobo (1993), a biographical snapshot of the last Depression-era hobo in the final years of his life and times. Williamson, a staff photographer at The Washington Post, won a second Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for his work in Kosovo. Maharidge teaches at the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University, previously taught journalism at Stanford University and was a 1988 Nieman Fellow at Harvard University.

Synopsis:

A "state of the union" address from Pulitzer Prize-winning writer/photographer team Dale Maharidge and Michael Williamson.

Synopsis:

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 race rage, 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 here are 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 from what we're used to seeing and yet which rings of truth.

Synopsis:

A complete picture, in both prose and photo essays, of post-9/11 America, a highly praised book from the Pulitzer Prize-winning team of Maharidge and Williamson.
