Regular price $7.99 Sale price
Twice before in its history, the united states has been faced with a crisis so severe it was forced to reinvent itself in order to survive: first, the struggle over slavery, culminating in the civil war, and the second, the great depression, which led to president roosevelt's new deal and the establishment of america as a social-democratic state. In a sequence of essays that excavate the past while laying bare the political upheaval of 2016, ben fountain argues that the united states may be facing a third existential crisis, one that will require a burning of the old order as america attempts to remake itself -- by ben fountain.
