The Monarchy of Fear

A Philosopher Looks at Our Political Crisis

Martha C. Nussbaum

  • From one of the world's most celebrated moral philosophers comes a thorough examination of the current American political crisis and recommendations for how to mend a divided country
  • A timely timely contribution to an important and difficult topic, both philosophically and societally
  • Drawing on a mix of historical and contemporary examples, from classical Athens to the musical Hamilton, The Monarchy of Fear untangles this web of feelings and provides a roadmap of where to go next
  • While the politics of blame is exemplified by the election of Donald Trump and the vote for Brexit, Nussbaum argues it can be found on all sides of the political spectrum, left or right
