Nation Institute Senior Fellow Chris Hedges (American Fascists, War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning) and comics journalist Joe Sacco (Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde) have teamed up to produce Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, a sweeping portrait of the American underclass and the institutions that profit from their misery. Sitting down with West Virginia coal miners; immigrant farmworkers in Florida; Sioux activists at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation; elderly residents of Camden, New Jersey; and Wall Street occupiers in New York, Hedges and Sacco bring together wrenching stories of crisis, despair, survival, and hope, the personal histories brought to life with Sacco's painstaking illustrations.

Also featured on today's show: a preview of the upcoming Projects International Art & Comics Fest with organizer Dunja Jankovic.
