A NEWSDAY TOP 10 BOOK OF THE YEAR

One of "6 Books to Understand Trump's Win" according to the New York Times the day after the election

The National Book Award Finalist and New York Times bestseller that became a guide and balm for a country struggling to understand the election of Donald Trump

When Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, a bewildered nation turned to Strangers in Their Own Land to understand what Trump voters were thinking when they cast their ballots. Arlie Hochschild, one of the most influential sociologists of her generation, had spent the preceding five years immersed in the community around Lake Charles, Louisiana, a Tea Party stronghold. As Jedediah Purdy put it in the New Republic, “Hochschild is fascinated by how people make sense of their lives. . . . [Her] attentive, detailed portraits . . . reveal a gulf between Hochchild’s ‘strangers in their own land’ and a new elite.” Already a favorite common read book in communities and on campuses across the country and called “humble and important” by David Brooks and “masterly” by Atul Gawande, Hochschild’s book has been lauded by Noam Chomsky, New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu, and countless others.

The paperback edition features a new afterword by the author reflecting on the election of Donald Trump and the other events that have unfolded both in Louisiana and around the country since the hardcover edition was published, and also includes a readers’ group guide at the back of the book.

Rezensionen
Praise for Arlie Hochschild's Strangers in Their Own Land: "This is a smart, respectful and compelling book." -Jason DeParle, The New York Times Book Review "Hochschild comes to know people-and her own nation-better than they know themselves" -Heather Mallick, The Toronto Star "Satisfying...[Hochschild's] analysis is overdue at a time when questions of policy and legislation and even fact have all but vanished from the public discourse." -Nathaniel Rich, The New York Review of Books "Hochschild moves beyond the truism that less affluent voters who support small government and tax cuts are voting against their own economic interest." - O Magazine "Up close there is a depth to the concerns of Hochschild's subjects...They are concerned about pollution, and about the social decay that we see most vividly in the opioid epidemic. They are aware...of facts on the ground." -Benjamin Wallace-Wells, The New Yorker " Strangers in Their Own Land is extraordinary for its consistent empathy and the attention it pays to the emotional terrain of politics. It is billed as a book for this moment, but it will endure." -Gabriel Thompson, Newsday [Hochschild's] connection and kindness to the people she meets is what makes this book so powerful. -Marion Winik, Minneapolis Star Tribune "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." -Jedediah Purdy, The New Republic "The importance of emotion in politics, not just facts and figures, [Hochschild] writes convincingly, is critical to understand...a point politicians of all stripes would be smart to remember." -Felice Belman, The Boston Globe "The anger and hurt of the author's interviewees is intelligible to all. In today's political climate, this may be invaluable." - The Economist "Arlie Russell Hochschild's Strangers in Their Own Land will certainly be among the most timely of books in this moment of seeming near apocalypse...remarkable." -Sean McCann, The Los Angeles Review of Books "Hochschild has gone about her investigation diligently and with an appealing humility." -Karen Olsson, Bookforum " Strangers In Their Own Land is by far the best book by an outsider to the Tea Party I have ever encountered. - Forbes "An important contribution to the understanding of our times... Strangers in Their Own Land describes in vivid detail a world that is often ignored or caricatured by the media and by many liberals." - The Nation "[Hochschild's] deeply humble approach is refreshing and strengthens her research.... She skillfully invites liberal readers into the lives of Americans whose views they may have never seriously considered. After evaluating her conclusions and meeting her informants in these pages, it's hard to disagree that empathy is the best solution to stymied political and social discourse." - Publishers Weekly "A well-told chronicle of an ambitious sociological project of significant current importance." - Kirkus Reviews "If the great political question of our time can be summarized in the two words, 'Donald Trump,' the answer is to be found in Arlie Russell Hochschild's brilliant new book, Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right . Hochschild, an eminent sociologist with a novelist's storytelling skill, has crafted an absorbing tale full of richly drawn, complicated characters who come bearing their own fascinating histories. Together, in Hochschild's authoritative hands, they offer a compelling and lucid portrait of what had seemed a bewildering political moment. A powerful, imaginative, necessary book, arriving not a moment too soon." -Mark Danner, author of Spiral: Trapped in the Forever War "Arlie Hochschild journeys into a far different world than her li…mehr
