review The View From Flyover Country 103 summary ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Sarah Kendzior In this collection of essays St Louis journalist Sarah Kendzior tackles issues including labor exploitation racism gentrification media bias and other aspects of the post employment economy Sample titles The Peril. In the era of the audacity of hope I made case for the audacity of despair This is the view of the other America from flyover country the places and people often ignored This is the view from flyover country where the rich are less rich and the the poor are poor and everyone has fewer things to loseThis book The View From Flyover Country Dispatches from the Forgotten America by Sarah Kendzior is a collection of essays which she wrote between 2012 2014 for Al Jazeera Sarah Kendzior an anthropologist turned writer makes her home in St Louis Missouri a state positioned in what is referred to as America s heartland or flyover country Ms Kendzior who had been studying authoritarian regimes which have been emerging in central Asia began to notice disturbing similarities between what was happening in other parts of the world and what was occurring in the United States She knew that countries with huge economic ineuality like the United States authoritarian leaders were rising to power Making her home in St Louis provided her with an opportunity to write about the challenges which have been facing people in towns and cities across middle America and how these challenges left unaddressed by government and elected officials for decades could create a vacuum which could then be filled by a demagogue speaking the language of populism I was curious about the term flyover country It s a term I ve been hearing a lot over the last decade or so This term is a description which has been used freuently in the media especially at election time Flyover country is defined as the parts of the United States that some Americans see only from the air and never actually see at ground level When used by the media or politicians flyover country instead refers to the parts of the country which are mainly ignored or forgotten until their votes are needed of courseThe essays in this book cover a number of broad themes the implications of continued high levels of economic and racial ineuality and the indifference shown shown by those with power toward those suffering the crisis occurring in higher education especially in terms of the 15 trillion of crushing student loan debt coupled with the lack of livable wage jobs available to students upon graduation the increasing widespread practice of universities hiring low paid adjunct professors despite the large increase in college tuition and the problems being created by what Ms Kendzior calls hipster economics the gentrification of neighborhoods which is pushing long term poor residents out of their own neighborhoods and often into homelessness I found all of the essays in this book thoughtful straightforward and full of empathy and compassion An essay I found particularly compelling was the essay Sarah Kendzior wrote about her hometown of St Louis Missouri The essay is written with the affection understanding and compassion that only a person familiar with the history of a place and in touch with the people and their struggles could write St Louis with its magnificent arch framing the sky ad known as the gateway to the west was built in the late 19th century and in the years of the early 20th century was known as the Future Great City of the World St Louis attracted all manner of explorers and companies which made it one of the great industrial cities of the midwest Now than 100 years later St Louis is instead characterized by a high murder rate high poverty rate and if you are a child born in north St Louis the odds are that you will die faster than a child born in Ira or Iran And of course St Louis is also characterized by the inattention of its government and a country that appears to have forgotten it Sarah Kendzior sets the scene in this essay to skillfully describe the sights and sounds of the streets in St Louis Reminiscent of other protests which have occurred across America she described a particular protest staged by fast food workers on May 8 2013 Dozens of workers were gathered holding signs which read We Can t Survive on 735 which was a reference to their hourly wage of 735hour a starvation or poverty wage no matter where you make you home Among the protesters gathered that day was a figure who caught her eye and it is this figure that I found to be the most powerful among all of the images she described On a St Louis street corner someone is wearing a sign that says I am a man Like most in the crowd gathered outside a record store parking lot he is African American He is a fast food worker and he is a protester He needs to remind you that he is a human being because it has been a long time since he was treated like oneYes on that St Louis street corner was a reminder of what Missouri where the shameful Dred Scott v Sandford Supreme Court decision originated in 1857 which stated that Americans of African descent whether free or slave were not American citizens and could not sue in federal court was still along with the rest of America grappling with regarding racism The than dozen essays collected in this book are powerful snapshots of an America in crisis Whether is is the adjunct professor Margaret Mary Vojtko who taught french at Duuesne University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for 25 years and made an annual salary of less than 10000 and ended up dying from cancer in abject poverty or the gentrification occurring in places like the South Bronx and Harlem which is driving up rents and pushing African American residents out of their neighborhoods leaving some battling homelessness Ms Kendzior makes her feelings perfectly clear Her essays illustrate a theme which runs throughout America is blindly and erroneously holding onto its mistaken belief in upward mobility and meritocracy She says In America there is little chance at a reversal of fortune for those less fortunate Poverty is a sentence for the crime of existing Poverty is a denial of rights sold as a character flawI found these essays to be beautifully written informative and heartfelt I wasn t surprised by any of the issues Sarah Kendzior discussed because I also live in flyover country although not in Missouri and I see every day the results of decades of deindustrialization and inattention from government the hollowing out of so many communities leaving many people in despair and struggling I can t say that she is correct in her views and her defining of the problems plaguing the United States but I did come away from this book agreeing with her about one thing we all need to demonstrate empathy toward our fellow citizens who are suffering demonstrate less blame and compassion I believe it is unwise to blame those who cannot navigate a system which is rigged and irreparably broken and we do so at our own peril As John F Kennedy said Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable Schicksalsjahre racism gentrification media bias and other aspects of the post employment economy

review The View From Flyover Country 103 summary ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Sarah Kendzior Missions Expensive Cities Are Killing Creativity A former columnist for Al Jazeera English Kendzior has spent years chronicling an America of diminishing opportunities This collection contains the best of her work. I have some reservations about this essay collection She has a clear eye for current issues and can articulate her arguments well I felt however that a lot of her focus was coming from the place of intellectual elites who are suffering under the current economy but whose lives are still very different from the majority I had thought this book would look at the average worker As this was not composed as a collection originally but is a gathering of her work over a period of a few years there is some repetition Nevertheless there is a lot of value and relevance in this collection 13 Sculptures Children Should Know repetition Nevertheless there is a lot of value and The Economics of Business Enterprise An Introduction to Economic Organisation and the Theory of the Firm Third Edition relevance in this collection

Note to new visitors this is a review of the self published 2015 edition of The View from Flyover Country I haven t read the edition from Flatiron Books which may contain different materialSarah Kendzior ended up being my canary in a coal mine when it came to a recent large scale political event Or accurately she was my Cassandra I unfollowed her on twitter for a while before that event because I thought she was being too alarmist Turns out she was 100% correct We can only hope her predictions of our future beyond today are less crushingly awful than she thinks they will beI came to this book looking for the seeds of the insights I d seen in her twitter feed They re there but not as obviously as I might have been looking for This book is a collection of essays published online between 2012 and 2014 or less and between the essays there s a decent amount of repetition especially when it comes to the poverty level pay of adjunct professors The jobs described in this book are on the elite spectrum international relations ie the UN journalism universities things along those lines Those lower on the ladder in these organizations need to be elites themselves with some sort of support outside their jobs in order to develop connections during internships that offer no payIn the last section of the book where one essay discusses Snowden in parallel with a look back to the Bush era of the 00s and another talks about resistance in Uzbekistan I saw glimpses of the global insight I ve come to expect from her twitter feedIn the end I d like to see a longer form book from Ms Kendzior This was fine but as often happens with me and essay collections I didn t find an overall arc to tie the whole thing together and the package taken together was somewhat unsatisfying
