People band together in groups based on their backgrounds, their faiths, their political affiliations. And when we ignore this crucial fact, we do so at our own peril. That’s the passionate thesis of bestselling Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother author Amy Chua’s bold new book, Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations. For decades, Chua argues, America has shown a shocking blindness to the importance of group identity — in our foreign as well as our domestic policy — and we’ve paid a steep price for it. So how can we move past facile notions of unity to a real unity that acknowledges the reality of group differences and fights the deep inequalities that divide us? Join Chua and General (Ret) David H. Petraeus for a timely, urgent talk.Buy tickets/get more info now
