Lilliana Mason UnzivilAgrement: How Politics Became Our Identity is easily the best book on American politics I`ve read in years. I mean this in two important ways. First, the book addresses perhaps the most pressing question in politics: why has American public opinion become increasingly polarized? The answer – that the increasing overlap between identities changes the way citizens see themselves and others – gives a clear understanding of polarization. But it`s not just an important book, it`s a good book. Mason constructs a meticulous reasoning based on social psychology, and each chapter of the book relies sequentially on the previous one. The result is a book that is more than the sum of the parts and represents a great progress in the field. I lost the number of times Mason made a point that clearly expressed a previously incomprehensible intuition about politics. There are few books that make this kind of contribution to a crucial issue in the way unzivile agreements do.
