Author George Packer Talks About the New America & Why It's in Danger
Commonwealth Club 595 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94105
George Packer has covered U.S. foreign policy for The New Yorker and has written several books, the most well-known being perhaps The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq. Now, in his newest book, entitled The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America, Packer argues that seismic economic shifts during just one generation have created a country of winners and losers, leaving the social contract in pieces and setting us all adrift to find new paths forward. See him at the Commonwealth Club as he presents the story of this America over the past 30 years, which he sees as a superpower in danger of coming apart at the seams, its elites no longer elite, its institutions no longer relevant.
