In the year 2020, Americans suffered one rude blow after another to their health, livelihoods, and collective self-esteem. A ruthless pandemic, an inept and malign government response, polarizing protests, and an election marred by conspiracy theories left many citizens in despair about their country and its democratic experiment. With pitiless precision, the year exposed the nation's underlying conditions-discredited elites, weakened institutions, blatant inequalities-and how difficult they are to remedy. In Last Best Hope, George Packer traces the shocks back to their sources.
