AUDIO BOOK: Why We're So Polarized
America is polarized, first and foremost, by identity. Everyone engaged
in American politics is engaged, at some level, in identity politics. Over
the past fifty years in America, our partisan identities have merged with
our racial, religious, geographic, ideological, and cultural identities.
These merged identities have attained a weight that is breaking much in
our politics and tearing at the bonds that hold this country
Klein shows how and why American politics polarized around identity in the 20th century, and what that polarization did to the way we see the world and one another. And he traces the feedback loops between polarized political identities and polarized political institutions that are driving our system toward crisis.
