This book is from the bestselling author of "The Case for Democracy", a piercing examination of the dominant force that shapes political interactions. Who is better prepared to confront challenges and defend principles in a volatile modern world? Those with strong national, religious, ethnic or tribal identities who accept democracy, or democrats who renounce identity as a kind of divisive prejudice?Natan Sharansky, building on his personal experience as a dissident, argues that valueless cosmopolitanism, even in democracies, is dangerous. Better to have hostile identities framed by democracy than democrats indifferent to identity. In a vigorous, insightful challenge to the left and right alike, Natan Sharansky, as he has proved repeatedly, is at the leading edge of the issues that frame our times.
