Coming in rather late with my post, but I note your comment.

I understand your disgust. You actually have a gem in your hands. If one takes the whole book in context, it is indicative of the rich white liberal and what his multi-cultural obsession leads middle America to. Maraniss damns multi-culture without realizing it.
This is my take and is open to debate. By a graphic picture of Kansas and it's oil boom years and it's massive wartime airplane industry, we know about Anerican know how and hard work. The next graphic picture is of "Luo Land". Kenya no less. The cutting of tribal throats and whatever. Kenya and Middle America do not belong together. Poor Stanley Ann found that out.
Forgive the ramble, but I am going to do an extensive book review to head my profile on FR.
We will "hang" David Maraniss yet (chuckle).
American know how and hard work.
