Synopsis

Is the U.S. as a country still capable of finding common ground and effective policy responses in the 21st century, or are the dividing lines within U.S. society actually becoming too deep and too wide to bridge, with potentially grave consequences for American social, political as well as economic development? This book discusses important contemporary U.S. wedge issues such as gun rights, racial and economic inequality, the role of the state, the politics of culture, interpretations of history and collective memory, polarization in national politics, and factionalism in domestic and foreign policy. It provides readers with conceptual tools to grasp the complexity of the current processes, policy formation, and political and social change under way in the United States.

Marcin Grabowski is Assistant Professor at Chair of History of Diplomacy and International Politics at the Institute of Political Sciences and International Relations at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland). Krystof Kozak is Head of the Department of American Studies at Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic).
