In BLOWOUT, with her trademark black humor, Maddow takes readers on a switchback journey around the globe, revealing the greed and incompetence of Big Oil and Gas along the way, and drawing a surprising conclusion about why the Russian government hacked the 2016 U.S. election. BLOWOUT is a call to contain the wealthiest businesses on earth, to fight for transparency, and to check the influence of the world’s most destructive industry and its enablers. Maddow writes, “Democracy either wins this one or disappears.”
