This Land Is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation

The US within the ’aughts—hilariously skewered, brilliantly dissected, and darkly clinically determined by means of the bestselling social critic hailed as “the soul mate”* of Jonathan Swift

Barbara Ehrenreich’s first ebook of satirical statement, The Worst Years of Our Lives, concerning the Reagan period, was once acquired with bestselling acclaim. the only challenge used to be the name: couldn’t a few prophetic fact-checker have obvious that the worst years of our lives—far worse—were nonetheless to return? the following they're, the 2000s, and during this Land Is Their Land, Ehrenreich matters them to the main biting and incisive satire of her career.

Taking the degree of what we're left with after the most harsh decade in reminiscence, Ehrenreich reveals lurid extremes throughout. whereas individuals of the moneyed elite should purchase congressmen, many within the operating category can slightly purchase lunch. whereas a prosperous minority obsessively consumes plastic surgery, the negative usually cross with no health and wellbeing take care of their teenagers. And whereas the company C-suites at the moment are nests of criminal activity, the fewer lucky are fed a nutrition of morality, marriage, and abstinence. Ehrenreich’s antidotes are as sardonic as they're spot-on: puppy assurance on your young children; Salvation military models should you can not have enough money Wal-Mart; and boundless rage opposed to those that have given us a state scarred through deepening inequality, corroded by means of mistrust, and shamed by means of its reliable cruelty.

Full of wit and generosity, those studies from a divided state convey once more that Ehrenreich is, as Molly Ivins acknowledged, “good for the soul. ”
