More About This Land Is Their Land by Barbara Ehrenreich
 
 
 
Overview

America in the 'aughts hilariously skewered, brilliantly dissected, and darkly diagnosed by one of the country's most prominent social critics

Now in paperback, Barbara Ehrenreich's widely acclaimed "This Land Is Their Land" takes the measure of what we are left with after the cruelest decade in memory and finds lurid extremes all around. While members of the moneyed elite have bought up congressmen, many in the working class can barely buy lunch. While a wealthy minority obsessively consumes cosmetic surgery, the poor often go without health care for their children. And while the Masters of the Universe have thrown themselves into the casino economy, the less fortunate have been fed a diet of morality, marriage, and abstinence. With perfect satiric pitch, Ehrenreich reveals a country scarred by deepening inequality, corroded by distrust, and shamed by its official cruelty.

Full of wit and generosity, these reports from a divided nation including new and unpublished essays confirm once again that Ehrenreich is, as the "San Francisco Chronicle" proclaims, "essential reading.""
