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?
