$36 includes a copy of the book

For almost two decades, The New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof has traveled the globe to put human faces on the devastating problems plaguing the planet — from disease and poverty to violence and exploitation — and on the efforts of individuals and organizations to repair it.


His latest book, written with his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, stays close to home, focusing on the ravages of unemployment, addiction, suicide and despair that have decimated working class America — and on the men and women struggling to rebuild lives after decades of government neglect.

Join these Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, whose Half the Sky skyrocketed to the top of the bestseller list, for a riveting account of the challenges facing the “other” America.
