Summary
"The book provides detailed account of four major disasters that befell the USA in the first decade of the twenty first century: the invasion of Iraq, Hurricane Katrina and the drowning of New Orleans, financial meltdown and the Gulf oil spill. It provides a compelling narrative of each event that summarizes the main findings but also shows the connections and ultimately the deep stresses that fracture contemporary USA. The text is very accessible to the general reader. The book will illuminate these wider and deeper structural flaws and make some general policy suggestions. In summary, it is guide to what ails the USA and what needs to be done to fix it"--
