Descrizione libro Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2013. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for The Unwinding: "Trenchant . . . [the] brief biographies of seminal figures that shaped the current state of affairs offer the book's fiercest prose, such as in Packer's brutal takedown of Robert Rubin, secretary of the Treasury during some key 1990s financial deregulation that amplified the severity of the Great Recession of 2008. Packer has a keen eye for the big story in the small moment, writing about our fraying social fabric with talent that matches his dismay." Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Exemplary journalism . . . A foundational document in the literature of the end of America." Kirkus (starred review) "A broad and compelling perspective on a nation in crisis . . . an illuminating, in-depth, sometimes frightening view of the complexities of decline and the enduring hope of recovery." Booklist (starred review) "George Packer has crafted a unique, irresistible contraption of a book. Not since John Dos Passos's celebrated U.S.A. trilogy, which The Unwinding recollects and rivals, has a writer so cunningly plumbed the seething undercurrents of American life. The result is a sad but delicious jazz-tempo requiem for the postWorld War II American social contract. You will often laugh through your tears at these tales of lives of ever-less-quiet desperation in a land going ever-more-noisily berserk." David M. Kennedy, Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Freedom from Fear and Over Here " The Unwinding is the extraordinary story of what's happened to our country over the past thirty years. George Packer gives us an intimate look into American lives that have been transformed by the dissolution of all the things that used to hold us together. The result is an epicwondrous, bracing, and truethat will stand as the defining book of our time." Dexter Filkins, author of The Forever War " The Unwinding presents a big, gorgeous, sad, utterly absorbing panorama of the relentless breakdown of the American social compact over a generation. George Packer communicates the scope and the human experience of the enormous change that is his subject better than any writer has so far." Nicholas Leman, author of Redemption and The Promised Land "Original, incisive, courageous, and essential. One of the best works of nonfiction I've read in years." Katherine Boo, National Book Awardwinning author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers "George Packer serves us the history of our own life and times in a magisterial look at the America we lost." Lawrence Wright, Pulitzer Prizewinning author of The Looming Tower and Going Clear "The hearts and lives broken in this second great depression have now found their eloquent voice and fierce champion in George Packer. The Unwinding is an American tragedy and a literary triumph." David Frum, author of Comeback and Why Romney Lost "As with George Orwell's, each of George Packer's sentences carries a pulse of moral force. The Unwinding is a sweeping and powerful book that everyone should read." David Gran, author of The Lost City of Z Praise for George Packer: "George Packer is a modern-day George Orwell . . . The places he writes about are never stages for personal or ideological heroism. They are always real and full of frustrating facts that expose both liberal and conservative absolutism as reckless attempts to deny reality." Jed Lipinski, The Village Voice.

Descrizione libro Farrar Straus Giroux, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 231 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The 2013 National Book Award WinnerA New York Times Bestseller Selected by New York Times critic Dwight Garner as a Favorite Book of 2013 One of Amazon s Best Books of 2013 A New York Times Notable Book of 2013 A Washington Post Best Political Book of 2013 An NPR Best Book of 2013 A New Republic Best Book of 2013 One of Publishers Weekly s Best Nonfiction Books of 2013 A Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Book of 2013 A riveting examination of a nation in crisis, from one of the finest political journalists of our generation American democracy is beset by a sense of crisis. Seismic shifts during a single generation have created a country of winners and losers, allowing unprecedented freedom while rending the social contract, driving the political system to the verge of breakdown, and setting citizens adrift to find new paths forward. In The Unwinding, George Packer, author of The Assassins Gate: America in Iraq, tells the story of the United States over the past three decades in an utterly original way, with his characteristically sharp eye for detail and gift for weaving together complex narratives. The Unwinding journeys through the lives of several Americans, including Dean Price, the son of tobacco farmers, who becomes an evangelist for a new economy in the rural South; Tammy Thomas, a factory worker in the Rust Belt trying to survive the collapse of her city; Jeff Connaughton, a Washington insider oscillating between political idealism and the lure of organized money; and Peter Thiel, a Silicon Valley billionaire who questions the Internet s significance and arrives at a radical vision of the future. Packer interweaves these intimate stories with biographical sketches of the era s leading public figures, from Newt Gingrich to Jay-Z, and collages made from newspaper headlines, advertising slogans, and song lyrics that capture the flow of events and their undercurrents. The Unwinding portrays a superpower in danger of coming apart at the seams, its elites no longer elite, its institutions no longer working, its ordinary people left to improvise their own schemes for success and salvation. Packer s novelistic and kaleidoscopic history of the new America is his most ambitious work to date. Codice libro della libreria LIB9780374102418
