Mini Review: Dying of Whiteness by Jonathan M. Metzl





Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment Is Killing America's Heartland

by Jonathan M. Metzl


4****


What a worthwhile read! Though it is heavy on statistics, the author presents them in a very human, accessible and impactful way. He chose to focus on education, gun control and healthcare and how those factors play an integral part in the well-being and prosperity of people and communities. I thought this was a smart approach, and he has clearly done his research, which at times was so thorough I was almost a little overwhelmed.

Truly an insightful book, even if it left me feeling slightly frustrated and sad, in the sense that there is such a tremendous disconnect between people in this country. This is certainly one I won't be very quick to forget!
