Why We're Polarized

ebook

A New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller

"Few books are as well-matched to the moment of their publication
" - Dan Hopkins, The Washington Post

"Powerful [and] intelligent"
- Fareed Zakaria, CNN
"Superbly researched and written" - Francis Fukuyama, The Washington Post
America's political system isn't broken. The truth is scarier: it's working exactly as designed.
In Why We're Polarised, Ezra Klein reveals the structural and psychological forces behind America's deep political divisions, revealing how a system filled with rational, functional parts can combine into a dysfunctional whole. Neither a polemic nor a lament, this book offers a clear framework for understanding everything from Trump's rise to the Democratic Party's leftward shift to the politicisation of everyday culture.
Klein shows how and why American politics polarised in the twentieth century, what that polarisation did to Americans' views of the world and one another, and how feedback loops between polarised political identities and polarised political institutions drive the system toward crisis. This revelatory book will change how you look at politics, and perhaps at yourself.
