By Thomas Geoghegan
The inequality reshaping the rustic is going past cash and source of revenue: the areas we paintings have ever extra inflexible hierarchies. A “perceptive, trained, and witty utopian philosopher” (Michael Kazin, Bookforum), Geoghegan makes his argument for hard work with tales, occasionally funny yet extra usually chilling, in regards to the difficulties operating humans like his personal clients—from cabdrivers to schoolteachers—face, more and more powerless in our union-free economic climate. He explains why a brand new type of hard work move (and not only extra better schooling) is the genuine application the Democrats should still push.
Written “in the disarming variety of a self-deprecating legal professional in a beleaguered box” (Kim Phillips-Fein, The Atlantic), Only something Can keep Us is classic Geoghegan, bearing unheard of insights into the genuine dynamics—and human experience—of operating in the United States today.
