In Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges and American Book Award-winning cartoonist Joe Sacco show how impoverished places across America—including nearby Camden, New Jersey—stand as a warning of what happens when a permanent underclass is cemented in place. A foreign correspondent for nearly two decades, Hedges was a member of the New York Times team that won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting for the paper’s coverage of global terrorism. He is the author of 11 books, including the bestseller, War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning. A senior fellow at The Nation Institute in New York, he currently writes a weekly column for Truthdig.
