Product description

Review

"An important book ...[I] strongly agree with Chua's argument that America's liberal elite has contributed to Trump's rise by failing to acknowledge its own sense of tribalism." -- Financial Times

"True to form, Amy Chua presents a provocative prescription to cure our political ills. She challenges us to cross the chasm between groups--not by denying differences, but by celebrating them."
--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

"Presented with keen clarity and brimming with definitive insights, Chua's analysis of identity politics is essential reading for understanding policy challenges both at home and abroad." -- Booklist

"Amy Chua's insightful, provocative and deeply troubling book is the place to begin our long overdue national discussion on how to repair the deep divisions in the American political landscape. Political Tribes is a wakeup call to the dangers of surrendering national unity to a fractured landscape of feuding and narrow interests."
--Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation

"Brilliant, timeless and timely. Political Tribes concisely explains the forces that made our experiences in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq so maddeningly difficult to comprehend, and brings that same thoughtful analysis to America today. Amy Chua provokes thought - and we need that."
--General Stan McChrystal, US Army (Ret)

"Political Tribes is a beautifully written, eminently readable, and uniquely important challenge to conventional wisdom. In it, Amy Chua argues that tribalism--and the social dysfunction and violence that comes along with it--is the norm all over the world, but the United States managed to escape its worst impulses thanks to a shared sense of national identity. But there's trouble on the horizon: identity politics on both the left and right threaten to unravel that consensus. Chua's book is a clarion call, encouraging us to reject the primal pull of identitarianism and return to that most radical of ideas, that Americans share something bigger than race or ethnicity or ideology: common citizenship and purpose."--J. D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy

"Another wonderful book by Amy Chua! In Political Tribes, she demonstrates once again that she ranks with the keenest observers of the contemporary landscape, establishing convincingly that "Humans are tribal," and that this reality holds significant implications for America if we truly are to achieve a 'more perfect union.'" --General David Petraeus, US Army (Ret), former commander of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and former Director of the CIA

"Amy Chua speaks hard truths that no one can ignore. We are, as Chua makes clear, living in denial about the power of tribalism over our domestic and foreign policy -- blinded, it seems, by our own optimism and distaste for essentialism. A page turner and revelation, Political Tribes will change the way you think."
--Tim Wu, author of The Attention Merchants and The Master Switch
