Cheaters Always Win : The Story of America, Hardback Book

Cheaters Always Win : The Story of America Hardback

Hardback

Description

Drawing from the intriguing (and sometimes unbelievable) true stories of the lives of everyday Americans, historian Julie M.

Fenster traces the history of the weakening of our national ethics through the practice of cheating.

From marital infidelity to financial fraud; rigged sports competitions to corruption in politics and the American education system; nuclear weaponry to beauty pageants; hospitals, TV gameshows, and charities; nothing and no one is exempt. And far from being ostracised, cheaters in every sphere continue to survive and even thrive, casting their influence over the rest of our society. And nowhere is this more obvious than in the recent tectonic shift in politics, where a revolution in our collective attitude toward fraudsters has ushered in a new kind of leadership.

Part history of an all-American tradition, part dissection of an ongoing national crisis, Cheaters Always Win is irresistible reading -- a smart, sardonic, and scintillating look into the practice that made America what it is today.
