Summary
"In 2015, lauded journalist Sarah Kendzior collected the essays she reported for Al Jazeera and published them as the bestselling book The View from Flyover Country. Now, for the first time ever, The View from Flyover Country is in print with an updated introduction and epilogue that reflect on how the Trump presidency was the inevitable result of the realities first captured in Kendzior's writing. A piercing critique of labor exploitation, race relations, media bias, and other aspects of America's post-employment economy that gave rise to a president who rules like an autocrat, The View from Flyover Country is essential reading for anyone who believes that the only way for America to solve its problems is to discuss them with compassion and honesty."--Back cover
