Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Haynes Johnson traveled the country from New England to the Sunbelt, from the heartland to the West Coast, interviewing Americans about their hopes and fears. Freely opening up to him, people spoke of their concerns - about jobs, crime, race, schools and services, values and leadership, and what lies ahead for the next generation. Now in a new Preface and Afterword for the paperback edition, Johnson shows how the Republican victories of the 1994 elections are the direct result of the factors he documented two years before. The problems that faced us when he wrote Divided We Fall are even more pressing today.
Here is an unforgettable portrait of a people at a pivotal historical moment: disconnected from their government, yearning for change but acutely aware of the hard choices facing us as we prepare for the twenty-first century. Drawing on these interviews to frame America's problems in the 1990s, Johnson sets them against the backdrop of President Bill Clinton's first year in office. Clearsighted and compassionate, this book is an eloquent warning that resonates even more strongly today. Divided We Fall urges us to join together, face the challenge of change, and take the brave gamble to reclaim the American Dream.

Industry Reviews

[Johnson's] reporter's instinct and analysis . . . make the book indispensable. His ear and eye for understanding America get to the real point of what our problems are.
