About

Overview

The haves and the have-nots, "coastal elites" versus "real America," big cities or fly-over country. People play fast and loose with the terms, but who falls into these groups and are they really so different? Media and politicians alike constantly push the narrative of "us" versus " them," instead of one nation indivisible. But are they correct to do so or woefully misguided? This insightful anthology unpacks the concept of a divided nation and looks at the conflicts that come from economic disparity, geography, social status, and more.
