Evil Geniuses
The Unmaking of America
Kurt Andersen - 2020-08-11
Goodreads Rating
This book explores how America abandoned fairness and the middle class, and instead favored big business and the wealthy. The author traces the dismantling of the economic and social systems that made the American Dream possible, showing how greed became good and workers powerless. With deep research and a fresh perspective, the author names those responsible for this undoing and offers a path forward from this man-made disaster. This is the one book everyone must read as we figure out how to rebuild our country.

Hiding in Plain Sight
The Invention of Donald Trump and the Erosion of America
Sarah Kendzior - 2020-04-07
Goodreads Rating
This book by Sarah Kendzior delves into the erosion of American liberty and the rise to power of Donald Trump. Kendzior expertly links key moments in Trump's life with the degradation of American politics and the erosion of civil liberties by foreign powers. This book offers a never-before-seen look at her personal life and her lifelong tendency to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hiding in Plain Sight is a necessary examination of the ongoing loss of freedom and secrets behind a burgeoning autocratic United States that have been hiding in plain sight for decades.
