Nation Institute Senior Fellow Chris Hedges (American Fascists, War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning) and comics journalist Joe Sacco (Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde) have teamed up to produce Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, a sweeping portrait of the American underclass and the institutions that profit from their misery.  Sitting down with West Virginia coal miners; immigrant farmworkers in Florida; Sioux activists at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation; elderly residents of Camden, New Jersey; and Wall Street occupiers in New York, Hedges and Sacco bring together wrenching stories of crisis, despair, survival, and hope, the personal histories brought to life with Sacco's painstaking illustrations.
