Going to Extremes

How Like Minds Unite and Divide

Cass R. Sunstein

  • One of America's leading legal scholars and political commentators illuminates the social dynamics that lead to extremism
  • Selling point: Sunstein is one of the most famous public intellectuals in the country, and his most recent co-authored book, Nudge, has been a bestseller for Yale UP
  • Selling point: He is a friend and advisor to Barack Obama, and both are dedicated to decreasing the levels of polarization in America-a message with real resonance in contemporary America
  • Selling point: Sunstein's argument is driven by the latest advances in social psychology, which is an approach that has the potential for broad appeal in the general public (like behavioral economics)
