about this book

Homeland is Pulitzer Prize winning author Maharidge’s biggest and most ambitious book yet, weaving together the disparate and contradictory strands of contemporary American society-common decency alongside race rage, the range of dissenting voices, and the roots of discontent that defy political affiliation. Here are American families who can no longer pay their medical bills, who’ve lost high-wage-earning jobs to NAFTA. And here are white supremacists who claim common ground with progressives. Maharidge’s approach is rigorously historical, creating a tapestry of today as it is lived in America, a self-portrait that is shockingly different from what we're used to seeing and yet which rings of truth.
