The monumental financial collapse of 2008 exposed cracks in the foundation of our economic, cultural, and political values. As we continue to dig out of the rubble, we must ask ourselves as a nation: What happened? What do we do now?

No one is in a better position to address these pressing questions than William Greider, who has for years been ringing the alarm on the gross dereliction of the Federal Reserve and other regulators, rampant materialism, the decay of political democracy, and the deepening inequalities of American life.

In Come Home, America, Greider lays out the confluence of political and economic forces that led to this defining moment in our nation's history. Greider argues that this is a turning point that offers profound challenges but also profound opportunities to face up to the economic and social contradictions we've been avoiding for decades and, under circumstances few of us ever hoped for or imagined, rediscover the redeeming promise of our country.
