Detail from book cover.

Humans are tribal. We need to belong to groups. But with a focus on national identity, Americans have been spectacularly blind to tribal politics. This blindness has not only undermined American foreign policy but has allowed dangerous forms of political tribalism that are tearing the country apart.

Can the United States rediscover a national identity that transcends political tribes? How does this worldview undermine American foreign policy?

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor at Yale Law School. She is the author of the best-selling books World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability, Why They Fall, and Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.
