Pete Buttigieg demonstrates how a breakdown of trust is central to our nation’s current predicament—and how our future depends on finding ways to instill confidence in the American project, and in each other. Trust is the essential foundation of America’s democracy, asserts Pete Buttigieg, former presidential candidate and bestselling author of Shortest Way Home. In a century shaped by terrorism, financial collapse, Trumpist populism, global pandemic, and systemic racism, trust—in our government, corporations, experts, and, most tragically, in one another—has precipitously eroded and, for so many, never existed in the first place. Recognizing that we are now experiencing disastrous consequences, the former South Bend mayor offers a direct reckoning with the corruption of social responsibility, interweaving history, political philosophy, and affecting passages of memoir, offering a new outlook for how we can confront the next decade’s challenges by building accountability. In this urgent work, Buttigieg confirms his status as a visionary political thinker.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Buttigieg recounts a few memorable lessons he has learned during both his military and political career. For example, he shows how establishing trust was imperative to the success of his life-threatening duties as a military driver in Afghanistan. The author also gives plenty of attention to the gross injustices that have occurred under the Trump administration, many of which serve as cases in point for why our trust in government has eroded so much… An eloquent call to action for socially conscious citizens to get involved in restoring essential networks of trust.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The book offers further proof, were it needed, that the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, also a former presidential candidate, has the most interesting political mind since Barack Obama.” The Guardian (London)
