Sam Pizzigati in D.C.

November 19, 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 5th & K Monday, November 19 at 6:30 to sign and discuss his new book. 

A century ago, the United States hosted a super-rich even more domineering than ours today. Yet fifty years later, that super-rich had almost entirely disappeared. Their majestic mansions and estates had become museums and college campuses, and America had become a vibrant, mass middle class nation, the first and finest the world had ever seen. In The Rich Don’t Always Win, Pizzigati examines that transformation in popular history, and speaks to the same hopeless feeling many Americans are feeling today.

This even is cosponsored by Teaching for Change‘s Institute for Policy Study.
