Waterstones Says

An eye-opening analysis of the deep divisions in today’s America, Klein’s inspiring book examines the inherent problems of the United States political system with piercing psychological insight.

America's political system isn't broken. The truth is scarier: it's working exactly as designed.

In Why We're Polarized, 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It's been a long time since I learned so much from one book. He shows just how broken the American political system is.' - Rutger Bregman author of Utopia for Realists and Humankind

'Eye-opening ... Klein's brilliant diagnosis and prescription provide a path to understanding--and healing.' - O Magazine 

'Why We're Polarized delivers. ... What Klein adds especially to [is] our understanding of how we got here--why Trump is more a vessel for our division than the cause, and why his departure will not provide any magical cure. ... A thoughtful, clear and persuasive analysis.' - Norman Ornstein, The New York Times Book Review
