Summary:

'This book has a miraculous quality.... As a memoir this is hard to put down; if you are seeking a better American future you should pick it up.”—Timothy Snyder, New York Times best-selling author of On Tyranny

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | A celebrated foreign policy expert and key impeachment witness reveals how declining opportunity has set America on the grim path of modern Russia—and draws on her personal journey out of poverty, as well as her unique perspectives as an historian and policy maker, to show how we can return hope to our forgotten places.

Fiona Hill grew up in a world of terminal decay. The last of the local mines had closed, businesses were shuttering, and despair was etched in the faces around her. Her father urged her to get out of their blighted corner of northern England: “There is nothing for you here, pet,” he said.  

 The coal-miner’s daughter managed to go further than he ever could have dreamed. She studied in Moscow and at Harvard, became an American citizen, and served three U.S. Presidents. But in the heartlands of both Russia and the United States, she saw troubling reflections of her hometown and similar populist impulses. By the time she offered her brave testimony in the first impeachment inquiry of President Trump, Hill knew that the desperation of forgotten people was driving American politics over the brink—and that we were running out of time to save ourselves from Russia’s fate. In this powerful, deeply personal account, she shares what she has learned, and shows why expanding opportunity is the only long-term hope for our democracy.

“Of every book written by anybody associated with the Trump administration, in any way, [this] is absolutely the one to read.”—Rachel Maddow

    Ever since I watched Fiona Hill testifying at the Trump impeachment hearing, I have been fascinated by her! She is incredibly smart and knows what she is talking about! I really enjoyed her book!

    This is a really important, timely, well-written, and amusing book. It is read by the author, which makes it even better. Fiona Hill is the daughter of a coal miner from County Durham in northeast England. She provides a unique perspective on the all too familiar problems of job creation, income inequality and race and class discrimination. She spends a lot of the book describing and explaining the similarities of the problems in the United States, Russia and the United Kingdom. I have recommended it to everyone I know, which I don't often do. This book is not to be missed. Ignore it at your peril.
