In American Mojo: Lost and Found, Peter D. Kiernan, the award-winning author of the New York Times best-seller Becoming China's Bitch, focuses on America's greatest challenge and opportunity: restoring the middle class to its full promise and potential. Our educated, skilled, and motivated middle class was the cornerstone of America's postwar economic might, but the country's dynamic core has struggled and changed dramatically through the last three decades. Kiernan's extensively researched story, told through individual histories, shows how the middle class flourished under unique circumstances following World War II and details how our middle class has been rocked and shaped by events abroad as much as at home. What emerges through his storytelling is a picture of middle-class decline and opportunity that is fuller, more moving, and ultimately more useful in terms of charting a path forward than other examinations.

"[T]his is a riveting read that sets out not to draw definite solutions from past successes and failures, but to educate the general readership with storytelling." (Publishers Weekly)
