    This is one book that lives up to its hype and is simply a must read if you are interested in politics and public affairs in this country Levin brilliantly lays out the problematic nostalgia that fuels our politics and our frustration with it at the same time He then lays out a beautiful alternative that actually acknowledges the problems we face and argues for strategies that are likely to retain the progress and positives of our current culture and economy and seek to address their failures This is one book that lives up to its hype and is simply a must read if you are interested in politics and public affairs in this country Levin brilliantly lays out the problematic nostalgia that fuels our politics and our frustration with it at the same time He then lays out a beautiful alternative that actually acknowledges the problems we face and argues for strategies that are likely to retain the progress and positives of our current culture and economy and seek to address their failures and dangers.I have to confess that my gushing praise of this book might be related to the way it mirrors my own thinking, oraccurately, brings to light in clear prose some of the vague instincts and unclarified thoughts I have had over the years Levin puts to words, and backs it up with research and data, what I only guessed at or hoped for.I will probably have to read this again to truly appreciate the argument and details but I ...

    I enjoyed reading this, for the most part Levin had some very valuable insights and observations, but his prescriptions for what we should do about it all were too detached e.g The Right shouldThe Left should, and I ask, who s going ...

    I ve been targeting some of my reading lately at trying to figure out how we ended up with a greedy, crude, narcissistic liar for president elect This book came highly recommended but was very disappointing.First, the author spent the first 100 pages making his main point The US used to be very united around similar values and a narrow range of political positions, and now we arefractured We used to listen to the same news sources now we haveoptions and tend to listen to the ones I ve been targeting some of my reading lately at trying to figure out how we ended up with a greedy, crude, narcissistic liar for president elect This book came highly recommended but was very disappointing.First, the author spent the first 100 pages making his main point The US used to be very united around similar values and a narrow range of political positions, and now we arefractured We used to listen to the same news sources now we haveoptions and tend to listen to the ones that reinforce our prejudices We used to be involved in and...

    The Fractured Republic is a fantastically original book It is very optimistic, yet clear eyed, which is a rare combination Most optimistic books about modern politics are also simplistic They typically consist of vague and belligerent paeans demanding the recapture of America s past Yuval Levin s book, on the other hand, is the very opposite It is precise and even handed And far from demanding recapture of the past, Levin explicitly r...

    How do we make our fractured republic a society of human flourishing Levin rejects both the progressive Left s prescription for consolidatingpower in the national government and the libertarian Right s prescription of expanding individual liberty without regard for whether we as a people, through our governments federal, state, local , are making space for and promoting institutions that will form citizens with enough moral maturity to choose the good, true, and beautiful.Instead Levin c How do we make our fractured republic a society of human flourishing Levin rejects both the progressive Left s prescription for consolidatingpower in the national government and the libertarian Right s prescription of expanding individual liberty without regard for whether we as a people, through our governments federal, state, local , are making space for and promoting institutions that will form citizens with enough moral maturity to choose the good, true, and beautiful.Instead Levin calls for a communitarian conservatism d...

    In my quest to read from many perspectives, I picked up this book, which was a good read I thought the first half was very good, with an analysis of the paralysis of nostalgia for both political parties But his cultural analysis was flat, and the second half of the book seemed to be filled with vague opinions Expressive individualism.points toward moral chaos But his bottom line prescription fits for all perspectives work locally, whether through civic groups, churches, non profit In my quest to read from many perspectives, I picked up this book, which was a good read I thought the first half was very good, with an analysis of the paralysis of nostalgia for both political ...

    Mostly poli sci babble but I like the term selective nostalgia as a description of the glorious past that both the right and left yearn for.

    If you like the word bifurcated , you re going to love this book Seriously Can t tell you how many times he talked about the bifurcated consolidation of America I felt the author was guilty of unnecessary obfuscation isn t it great that the word that means making something unintelligible is itself an unintelligible word Douglas Hyde has written never use a long word where a short one will serve equally well, never write with the idea of proving one s own erudition but rather in or If you like the word bifurcated , you re going to love this book Seriously Can t tell you how many times he talked about the bifurcated cons...
