Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt is a 2012 illustrated non-fiction book authored by Chris Hedges and illustrated by Joe Sacco, chronicling life in poverty in different parts of the United States.


The book captures daily life in four areas of 'destruction or revolt', in five sections - Days of theft, Days of siege, Days of devastation, Days of slavery and Days of Revolt. The book is interspersed with interviews with several individuals as well as monographs capturing the devastation caused to people and the environment by unchecked post-industrial free market capitalism in the United States, in so called 'sacrifice zones'.[1]
