Death of a Nation is a novel about the political forces dividing the United States against itself. Although a work of fiction, the book includes actual historical events in lead-up to the story, as well as real-life characters effecting events in the near future. Death of a Nation marries two looming events coming near the end of the calendar year; the 2012 Presidential election and the December 21st Mayan Prophecy. It is a story of how an incendiary, turbulent trek toward the November election creates an irreparable schism within the fabric of the nation. The story unites this schism with the fabled Mayan Prophecy, however instead of celestial global catastrophe; it is the crumbling of the United States that devastates the world. The tumultuous romp toward the end days for the United States begins with a recap of racial relations throughout our history and culminates with an all-out, media-fed battle for the White House and control of America. In the end, the world is left to its own devices and demise with the absence of the last great super power.
