Deer Hunting With Jesus : Guns, Votes, Debt and Delusion in Redneck America, Paperback / softback Book

Deer Hunting With Jesus : Guns, Votes, Debt and Delusion in Redneck America Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Welcome to Winchester, Virginia: a town populated almost entirely by the undereducated, the overweight and the dirt-poor.

Patsy Cline may have been born here, but she got out pretty fast - for most of the inhabitants, life is a constant, unwinnable scrabble over mortgage repayments, loan debts and healthcare bills, and the only avenues of escape are a tour of duty in Iraq, alcohol, overeating or God.

Joe Bageant knows these people well because he is one of them, and in this riveting journey around the factories, the rifle ranges, the bars and the lots of his hometown, he shows us how white working-class Americans have been exploited and betrayed by the very people - in Big Business and in the Republican government - they put their faith in.

These people are not stupid white men (and women), but they are misled.
