More About This Title Waltzing at the Doomsday Ball

English

The only collection of Joe Bageant’s essays available in book form, this compilation features 25 essays by the self-proclaimed redneck socialist. Exploring the plight of America’s white, “redneck” underclass—a topic considered taboo for the mainstream media—with insight, humor, compassion, and rage, this record is the result of the editorial freedom Bageant gained via the internet. Touching upon politics, current affairs, and sociology, the essays were selected for inclusion based on reader feedback, web-traffic counts, and suggestions from Bageant’s online colleagues.
