Barbara Ehrenreich: This Land is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation
As evidenced by her bestsellers Nickel and Dimed and Bait and Switch, journalist and cultural historian Barbara Ehrenreich has consistently and effectively been a champion for the poor and the middle class. In her latest book, This Land is Their Land, Ehrenreich masterfully articulates the hardships and hypocrisies facing the squeezed majority of the population.
Through a compilation of essays and blog entries on a myriad of issues including health care, employment, stem cells, and finances, This Land is Their Land provides readers with cutting and provocative social commentary on the Bush years. As Ehrenreich says, The looting of America has gone on too long, and the average American is too maxed out, overworked and overspent to have anything left to take. We need a new deal, a new distribution of power and wealth, if we want to restore the beautiful idea that was America.
Ehrenreich is a journalist and the author of the more than one-million-copy bestseller Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America and the New York Times bestseller Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream. A frequent contributor to Harpers and The Nation, Ehrenreich has been a columnist at The New York Times and Time magazine. Her articles, reviews, essays, and humor pieces have appeared in a range of national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, and newspapers throughout the world.
In true Ehrenreich fashion, This Land is Their Land offers a relevant, compelling and often hilarious assessment of the issues that are at the forefront of many peoples minds during these anxious times.
