This is a collection of articles Ehrenreich wrote in the 80’s covering a wide range of topics, but with a heavily political orientation. Democracy, feminism, the culture of the 80’s comes under her incisive analytical gaze, but she manages the job with a surprising amount of humor. I was not expecting that. The pieces have, in many instances, relevance to the 2000’s as well as the 1980’s. But the idolization of greed was newer then and the right-wingers had not yet made such a mess of the world or succeeded as well as dividing America into the haves and the wants. Much of what she wrote twenty years ago was quite prescient. It was a good read, not fab, but good.
