Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations by Amy Chua | Conversation Starters
“Political Tribes” is a book written by bestseller author Amy Chua. In it, she argues that Americans tend to always regard the world in terms of countries engaged in great ideological combats, for example, Democracy vs. Authoritarianism or Capitalism vs. Communism. Chua defines this as blindness that is responsible for undermining American foreign policy. She claims America must find a national identity that goes beyond political tribes. She says that slogans of unity are false and just another form of discord and calls for a different type of harmony, a more difficult one, that recognizes and fights the reality of tribe inequities and differences.
“Political Tribes” enjoyed great success; reaching Amazon’s best sellers rank shortly after it was published. The Financial Times called it an important book that presents in a clear way how America’s liberals contributed to Trump’s election by failing to see its own sense of tribalism.
