Kruse Nding historical fault lines over income ineuality racial division and a revolution in gender roles and sexual norms would deepen and fuel a polarized political landscape In Fault Lines leading historians Kevin M Kruse and Julian E Zelizer reveal how the divisions of the present day began a. First this book was EXTREMELY readable It was clearly written to be read not just by academics but by the general population trying to get an understanding of our political reality Secondly I learned a lot that I didn t know I gained a much deeper understanding of things I had never understood the dot com boom how fucking close popular votes are but there s wild havoc in the electoral college the large large impact of the formation of different media companies Because this was sort of bare bones in order for it to not be 6 million pages long presumably on topics that I personally know a lot about I found it really lacking but I imagine anyone would feel that way since all topics got a few brief pages given the pure amount of content it needed to cover As the authors said they modeled the book off of their undergraduate course on history of American since 1974 and it shows It feels very much like it s written in the model of a medium level undergraduate history course aka giving enough bones to make the argument while also possibly sparking interest in specific events or time periods without getting too deep into the information themselves It felt like a jumping off board so that people got enough information to not have gaping holes but could decide they wanted to go into history 300 or 400 classes that were pointed and had tighter focusIt is interesting that they decided to start with 1974 and I agree that there was a particular level of political discord started then However I am surprised they didn t address that the same level or greater happened prior to WWI and that the WWI through 1960 was an anomaly in American history It also is SUPER white and cis and het and male to talk about the time before 1974 as some sort of great American cohesion it is true that there was cohesion in a lot of ways including because the wealth disparities weren t as large It also is true that communities that were Othered were fighting hard as hell to survive at all especially to survive on our own terms during the War and Post War but pre 1974 time frame especially when you look at everything happening with the Civil Rights movement and the fact that a president a presidential candidate and Dr King were all murdered shortly before the beginning of this book I know that their primary thesis is that the true political polarization all was really sparked in 1974 but their argument and evidence for that is not robust enough to prove their point Especially since it seems to sort of just pretend that the 1950s and 1960s didn t really happen Which is perplexing Even if what they mean is that in the federal government political polarization didn t become so large until that point like George Wallace Barry Goldwater Their final paragraph is The uestion that the United States of America now faces as a divided country is whether we can harness the intense energy that now drives us apart and channel it once again toward creating new and stronger bridges that can bring us closer together Whether the fault lines of the past four decades will continue to fracture or whether these rifts will finally start to heal is a chapter yet to come I think this is it really exemplifies where the priorities lie to them Their priorities seem to lie far in finding cohesion and cooperation than it does with moving forward for the most marginalized of us and that s where it really doesn t sit uite right with me I know their personal work fairly well and both of them DO care a lot about marginalized populations so this conclusion and finale don t seem to fit and are disconcerting It seems not to acknowledge that there is no finding agreement with people who want us dead people who want to debate whether we exist at all people who would commit violence against us We will not go back and we will not go silently and there is not an adeuate acknowledgement of thatOverall I am glad that I read it and there are people who I would suggest read it but I did not love it and I was definitely not convinced of their thesis that 1974 was a large starting point Versuchte Nähe you look at everything happening with the Civil Rights movement and the fact that a

I m sorry to say I was a little lukewarm on this book It s a fine overview and it s written clearly which would make it a good book to teach from but I was really struck by how closely the first 100 pages resemble Bruce Schulman s The Seventies and the 1980s and 1990s parts are very similar to Gil Troy s Morning in America and The Age of Clinton as well as the CNN decade documentaries It s not plagiarism exactly but it doesn t offer a new perspective and it actually felt a little too broad on the fault lines we re dealing with it s focused on Democrats vs Republicans but there are other fault lines populist vs centrist isolationist vs internationalist urban vs rural that are not really discussed in depth here
