Reviews

A sweeping and brilliant portrait of a people subjected to fifty years of rightwing aggression . . . The most personal and the most powerful description yet . . . My hope is that everyone who reads this great book will be enraged enough to redouble their efforts to undo the damage the greedy have wrought, and to take back America for its decent citizens, once and for all * Guardian *
Stellar reporting . . . As an overview of a fractious ideological landscape, this skillful treatment is hard to beat. An elegant survey of the causes and effects of polarization in America * Kirkus (starred review) *
Incisive . . . An engrossing and revealing look at how deeply connected yet far apart Americans are * Publisher's Weekly *
A reportorial tour de force . . . Osnos paints an indelible picture that is heart-rending, appalling and hard to put down -- ' Jane Mayer, chief Washington correspondent for the New Yorker and author of DARK MONEY
Visionary in scope, compassionate in procedure, Wildland brilliantly transmutes our national chaos into absorbing narrative order. Evan Osnos has penned a definitive portrait of what we have allowed ourselves to become: a nation reaping the harvest that long negligence has sown -- Ayad Akhtar, author of HOMELAND ELEGIES
In this richly reported, beautifully written book, Evan Osnos chronicles two decades of American anger, fury, and political dysfunction . . . A riveting tale of dark times, told with a pathos and humanity that prompts hope of something better -- Michael J. Sandel, author of THE TYRANNY OF MERIT
