About The Event
Why do some places zoom ahead and others get left behind? What's distinctive about "Trump Country"? And what's Tocqueville got to do with it all? Tim Carney's wide-ranging book deftly combines deep thinking about community life in America today with solid empirical evidence to demonstrate his claims. Join us for an evening of conversation about a country that's at once wealthy but also anxious and alienated.
