This Land Is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation

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

Barbara Ehrenreich’s first publication of satirical remark, The Worst Years of Our Lives, concerning the Reagan period, was once bought with bestselling acclaim. the only challenge used to be the name: couldn’t a few prophetic fact-checker have noticeable that the worst years of our lives—far worse—were nonetheless to come back? right here 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 participants of the moneyed elite can purchase congressmen, many within the operating category can slightly purchase lunch. whereas a filthy rich minority obsessively consumes plastic surgery, the terrible frequently pass with out wellbeing and fitness take care of their childrens. And whereas the company C-suites are actually nests of criminal activity, the fewer lucky are fed a vitamin of morality, marriage, and abstinence. Ehrenreich’s antidotes are as sardonic as they're spot-on: puppy coverage on your young children; Salvation military models if you happen to can not have the funds for Wal-Mart; and boundless rage opposed to those that have given us a country scarred via deepening inequality, corroded via mistrust, and shamed via its reputable cruelty.

Full of wit and generosity, those reviews from a divided kingdom express once more that Ehrenreich is, as Molly Ivins stated, “good for the soul. ”

Algo de esta índole ocurre con Las venas abiertas de América Latina. La incontenible hemorragia del título comienza por arrastrar la sobriedad que el tema requiere. Veremos cómo se coagula este desafortunado espasmo literario. La división internacional del trabajo consiste en que unos países se especializan en ganar y otros en perder, (p.

La Isla — en efecto — está pidiendo a gritos préstamos e inversiones exteriores para crear joint ventares en los que se despoja a los trabajadores del noventa y cinco por ciento de su paga, mediante el cínico expediente de cobrarle en dólares los salarios al socio extranjero, para pagarles a los obreros en pesos inservibles y devaluados que se cambian en el mercado negro a cuarenta por uno.
