POLITICAL TRIBES Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations

by | Read by Julia Whelan

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This intriguing audiobook looks at how the U.S. has failed to recognize the power of tribalism, the propensity of societies to break down along ethnic, religious, or clan identities, in its foreign policy and its domestic politics. The author prescribes a healthy dose of unity and common purpose as the cure and says that this will not be easy, but it is essential to our survival as a democratic republic. Julia Whelan narrates with seriousness, using a breathy voice and a tone of urgency to keep listeners engaged. Whelan is also remarkably consistent in her approach to this audiobook, but that also means that most of it sounds the same. Nonetheless, she paces herself effectively and pronounces every word with clarity. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
