About The Unwinding by George Packer:
Detailing the United States’ decline in the latter half of the twentieth century, journalist George Packer’s The Unwinding reads like a memoir but contains the hard-hitting facts of an exposé. Packer’s history of America looks at a cast of interesting figures—from community organizers to laborers, Democratic Party staffers to small business owners—including household names such as Oprah Winfrey, Colin Powell, Raymond Carver, Jay-Z, and Elizabeth Warren, to produce a stunning portrait of what the United States has become and where it’s headed next.
The Unwinding won the National Book Award, was a National Book Circle Award finalist, and was named by the New York Times as one of the best books to read to understand the Trump presidency.
