Beautiful Country Burn Again: Democracy, Rebellion, and Revolution

Fiery. Instead of watching the State of the Union address this year, consider reading Ben Fountain’s book titled, Beautiful Country Burn Again: Democracy, Rebellion, and Revolution. His view of how we came to this point and where we are going should disturb every reader. Fountain describes that America’s first crisis was over slavery and led to the Civil War. Our second crisis was the Depression and that led to the New Deal. He views that the country is now ready for a third great reinvention. To bring readers to that point, this book takes us month my month through the 2016 campaign, along with backward looks to lessons from the past. Fountain writes with great skill and passion. He senses something in the air. Maybe you should read this book to see if you agree. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Beautiful Country Burn Again from amazon.com.
