Summary:

"The past four years in the United States have been among the most turbulent in our history--and would have been so even without a global pandemic and waves of protest nationwide against police violence. Drawn from the recent work of The Atlantic staff writers and contributors, The American Crisis explores the factors that led us to the present moment: racial division, economic inequality, political dysfunction, the hollowing out of government, the devaluation of truth, and the unique threat posed by Donald Trump. Today's emergencies expose pathologies years in the making. Featuring leading voices from The Atlantic, one of the country's most widely read and influential magazines, The American Crisis is a broad and essential look at the condition of America today--and at the qualities of national character that may yet offer hope" --book jacket.
