With our wide disparities in income and educational opportunities, of criminal justice outcomes, and with overt and subtle political repression, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Cay Johnston has called the US “the most unequal of developed nations.” Johnston, the bestselling author of Free Lunch, Perfectly Legal, and The Fine Print, has now edited the collection Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality, which brings together economists, politicians, journalists, and scholars to investigate this culture of inequality, and–most important–what it holds for our country’s future.

David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times, has hunted down a killer the police failed to catch, exposed LAPD abuses, caused two television stations to lose their licenses over news manipulations, and revealed Donald Trump's true net worth. He has uncovered so many tax dodges that he has been called the "de facto chief tax enforcement officer of the United States." His last book, Perfectly Legal, was a New York Times bestseller and honored as Book of the Year by the journalism organization Investigative Reporters and Editors. Over his forty-year career he has won many other honors, including a George Polk Award.
