George Packer, author of The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America. In his book, Packer posits that American democracy is beset by a sense of crisis. Seismic shifts during a single generation have created a country of winners and loser, allowing unprecedented freedom while rending the social contract, driving the political system to the verge of breakdown, and setting citizens adrift to find new paths forward.
