"This book has a miraculous quality....A�As a memoir this is hard to put down; if you are seeking a better American future you should pick it up.�__�_"Timothy Snyder,A�New York TimesA�best-selling author ofA�On TyrannyINSTANTA�NEW YORK TIMESA�BESTSELLERA�|A�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: �_oThere is nothing for you here, pet,�__ he said.A�A�A�The coal-miner�_Ts 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 firstA�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�_Ts 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. �_oOf every book written by anybody associated with the Trump administration, in any way, [this] is absolutely the one to read.�__�_"Rachel MaddowA�A�AA�New York TimesA�BestsellerA�| AA�Washington PostA�BestsellerA�| AA�Washington Post Notable Book of the YearA�| AA�Financial TimesA�Best Book of the Year
