American politics is loud, bitter, and in your face. It's even affecting our relationships How often has politics come between you and a friend, a co-worker, a close family member, or even a spouse? How many parents find it difficult to talk with their own kids because of political differences? The shouting and fighting we see on cable news programs seems to be creeping more and more into our personal lives. The bad news is that politics isn't going away. The good news is that we can understand better why people disagree so strongly over politics, and in the process we can understand and relate better to those closest to us. We can learn to talk quietly and calmly about politics, without all the noise, while together we plan the future we have in common as fellow citizens. Crisis of Our House Divided is our guide.This short, easy read is not written in a wordy, academic style. Instead, it's concise and to the point. Perfect for kitchen-table conversations.
