"American politics today is defined by the intense and toxic divide between Democrats and Republicans. This book traces this type of political conflict to changes in American society that have caused politics to become more appealing to individuals seeking cognitive closure, creating a new, closed, kind of partisanship in America"--, Provided by publisher
