Chris Hayes

Chris Hayes discusses and signs his new book, Twilight of the Elites, a powerful and original argument that traces the roots of our present crisis of authority to an unlikely source: the meritocracy. Mixing political analysis, social commentary, and historical understanding, Twilight of the Elites describes how the society we have come to inhabit—forgiving at the top and punitive at the bottom—produces leaders who are out of touch with those they govern. Hayes is editor-at-large for The Nation and host of Up with Chris Hayes on MSNBC.
