THE GREAT NATIONAL DIVIDES discusses the many divisions in the United States and how to fix them to reunite this great country.
These divisions include divides based on race, ethnicity, politics, geography, and the great schisms between North and South, rural and urban American, and income inequality between the rich and poor which is getting wider.
The book concludes with some ways to reform the system, a fix that is especially critical today.
