Congratulations to George Packer for winning the National Book Award for non-fiction with his new work, The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America. Packer modeled the structure and theme of The Unwinding after http://laparkan.com/buy-vardenafil/ John Dos Passos’s U.S.A.

New York Times journalist David Brooks acknowledges the connection to Dos Passos. Packer himself  notes the influence, too.

It’s a great time to reflect on American economic history since the 1970s.
