Wildland: The Making and Unmaking of America’s Fury
The Diamonstein-Spielvogel Forum on History and the Public Good
As the 2022 midterm elections approach, social and political polarization within the United States has been underscored by a rise in civil unrest and a decline in confidence in America's governing institutions. How did a nation once held up as a global model of democratic strength and unity find itself in a state of political instability? How do we bridge those divisions? Journalist and author Evan Osnos, in conversation with Gillian Tett, reflects upon the stories and experiences of people he has met across the country to illuminate how we found ourselves in this era of division and uncertainty.
Evan Osnos, a staff writer at the New Yorker and a CNN contributor, is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Wildland: The Making of America’s Fury. Gillian Tett, author of the award-winning Anthro-Vision, is chair of the Financial Times U.S. editorial board.
