Divided States of America

What caused America’s intense polarisation during the Obama presidency?

Drawing on extensive interviews with White House and Congressional insiders from both the Democratic and Republican parties, Divided States of America digs into the causes of America’s intense polarisation and questions how the next U.S. president and Congress can govern in an era of complex challenges.

Divided States of America looks back at events during the Obama presidency that have led to deep divisions in the United States and examines the America that President Trump has inherited.  

Offering an in-depth view of the partisanship that gridlocked Washington and charged the 2016 presidential campaign, the rise of populist anger on both sides of the aisle and the racial tensions that have erupted throughout the country, Divided States of America tells a revealing story that’s not just about Barack Obama’s presidency, but about America itself.
