Summary
The United States is in a fifty-states-wide couples' counseling session, thinking about filing for divorce. Can a nation composed of states that are so different possibly hang together? Quinn calls us out state-by-state, and identifies the hypocrisies inherent in what we claim to believe and what we actually do. Within a framework of big-picture thinking about systems of government he skewers us all: red, blue, and purple-- while maintaining the same blend of optimism and practicality that sparked the U.S. into being. -- adapted from jacket
