Description

When Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, a bewildered nation turned to Strangers in Their Own Land to understand what had happened and what Trump voters were thinking when they cast their ballots. Arlie Hochschild had been spending the preceding five years immersed in the strongly Tea-Party-facing community around Lake Charles, Louisiana. As Jedediah Purdy put it in the New Republic, "Hochschild is fascinated by how people make sense of their lives...[She] conveys that she genuinely likes the people she meets, communicating their dignity and values...These attentive, detailed portraits...reveal a gulf between Hochschild's 'strangers in their own land' and a new elite." From this material, Hochschild comes to understand the "deep story" that animates the rank and file of the white American right: that they have been waiting in line for the American Dream for far too long, watching other groups who were previously behind them in line--such as blacks and feminists--cut in front of them. A New York Times bestseller and a finalist for a National Book Award, Strangers in Their Own Land is not a pretty picture, but an essential one, that elevates "The importance of emotion in politics, not just facts and figures" (Felice Belman, The Boston Globe).
