Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The social commentator and author of The Worst Years of Our Lives presents a satirical critique that denounces the twenty-first-century's first political decade as the cruelest in memory, in a report that analyzes such modern challenges as political and corporate corruption, the widening economic gap, and a rise in extreme conservatism.

Review:
"Provocative, angry and funny, often at the same time--just don't try to read it all in sitting."

Kirkus Reviews, 04/01/2008

Review:
"[T]he best of the pieces are something quite different from journalism. They are small absurdist gems. Ms. Ehrenreich will take a familiar social or cultural inequity, and then take it too far, and then take it so far that it metamorphoses into a disbelieving belief....[T]here are times she is closer to Dean Swift with his Modest Proposal to alleviate starvation by cooking and eating babies."

Richard Eder, New York Times, 07/25/2008

Book Description: Metropolitan Books, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 221 x 154 mm. Brand New Book. America in the #8217;aughts#8212;hilariously skewered, brilliantly dissected, and darkly diagnosed by the bestselling social critic hailed as #8220;the soul mate#8221;* of Jonathan SwiftBarbara Ehrenreich#8217;s first book of satirical commentary, The Worst Years of Our Lives, about the Reagan era, was received with bestselling acclaim. The one problem was the title: couldn#8217;t some prophetic fact-checker have seen that the worst years of our lives#8212;far worse#8212;were still to come? Here they are, the 2000s, and in This Land Is Their Land, Ehrenreich subjects them to the most biting and incisive satire of her career.Taking the measure of what we are left with after the cruelest decade in memory, Ehrenreich finds lurid extremes all around. While members of the moneyed elite can buy congressmen, many in the working class can barely buy lunch. While a wealthy minority obsessively consumes cosmetic surgery, the poor often go without health care for their children. And while the corporate C-suites are now nests of criminality, the less fortunate are fed a diet of morality, marriage, and abstinence. Ehrenreich#8217;s antidotes are as sardonic as they are spot-on: pet insurance for your kids; Salvation Army fashions for those who can no longer afford Wal-Mart; and boundless rage against those who have given us a nation scarred by deepening inequality, corroded by distrust, and shamed by its official cruelty.Full of wit and generosity, these reports from a divided nation show once again that Ehrenreich is, as Molly Ivins said, #8220;good for the soul.#8221;#8212;*The Times (London).
