The Real State of America Atlas
Mapping the Myths and Truths of the United States189Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.America is the land of the free, the beacon of democracy, and the leader of the world. It is the land of opportunity and a nation of homeowners. Or is it? Packed with maps, graphics, illustrations, and incisive essays, this handy, concise atlas examines the most cherished ideals about American life to see how they measure up to the realities: Who votes for whom? Are McMansions really taking over? Where do soldiers come from? Where are the guns? Is the foreclosure crisis affecting everyone? Where are the uninsured? How are women faring in the Great Recession? Are there any wild open spaces left in America?
