Sam Pizzigati in Hyattsville

November 29, 2012 6:30pm

Sam Pizzigati, author of The Rich Don’t Always Win: The Forgotten Triumph over Plutocracy that Created the American Middle Class, 1900–1970will be at Busboys & Poets Hyattsville Thursday, Nove,ber 29  at 6:30 to sign and discuss his new book. 

Polls now show that two-thirds of Americans believe that the nation’s enormous wealth ought to be “distributed more evenly.” But almost as many Americans—well over half—feel that protests against inequality will ultimately have “little impact.” The rich, millions of us believe, always get their way. But, as Pizzigati shows in the popular history of 1900-1970, the plutocracy can win.

This event is co-sponsored by Teaching for Change and the Institute for Policy Studies.
