Publisher's Summary

'His campaign was historic for all America.' (Guardian

Trust will be our essential tool as we face unique challenges of the decades ahead. 

In a century warped by terrorism, Trumpism, financial collapse, populism, systemic racism, Russian interference and a global pandemic, trust within and among nations has been squandered, sacrificed, abused, stolen or never properly built in the first place. 

In a piercing exploration of the soul of the American nation involving history, philosophy and memoir, former presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg explores the strong relationship between prosperity and social trust. 

Our success, or failure, in confronting the greatest challenges of the decade - racial and economic justice, pandemic resilience and climate action - will rest on whether we can effectively cultivate, deepen and repair the networks of trust that are now endangered or, for so many, have never even existed. This means trust in institutions, in each other and in the democratic project itself.

Go h-Ana Mhaith means very good in Irish

I downloaded this yesterday October 10, and finished it today - it was compelling listening - a very vital and vibrant message of hope in days that seem dark for more reasons than one. What a challenge it is to think of TRUST, of taking the risk without the certainty! But Pete is right, if we don't trust we will lose ourselves. I hope readers will realize that Pete's message goes for beyond politics.
