    READER Æ TEXT Fault Lines Fault LinesThe book is great but it's pretty elementary Maybe good for high schoolers or a college course The book is a catalogue of big events that happened in the political space and cultural fights etc If you read a lot of history books there is nothing in here that is new It's a good summary of the last 40 years though so it's good for many audiences to have it in once place like this

    READER Æ TEXT Fault Lines Fault LinesIt feels weird putting the last 45 years into an attempted bird's eye objective view of what is happening in US history Everything thing is too close in time Everything touched on has some salience to where the reader stands politically The author's try to be neutral but there is no neutral now that is something for the age of three channels and HuntleyBrinkley and Cronkite The author notes this development of polarization in po

    READER Æ TEXT Fault Lines Fault LinesFirst this book was EXTREMELY readable It was clearly written to be read not just by academics but by the general population trying to get an understanding of our political reality Secondly I learned a lot that I didn’t know I gained a much deeper understanding of things I had never understood the dot com boom how fucking close popular votes are but there’s wild havoc in the electoral college the large large impact of the formation of different media companies Because this was sort of bare bones in order for it to not be 6 million pages long presumably on topics that I personally know a lot about I found it really lacking but I imagine anyone would feel that way since all topics got a few brief pages given the pure amount of content it needed to cover As the authors said they modeled the book off of their undergraduate course on history of American since 1974 and it shows It feels very much like it’s written in the model of a medium l

    READER Æ TEXT Fault Lines Fault LinesKevin Kruse is a historian famous for dunking on Dinish D'Souza on Twitter which is like being a basketball player being known for dunking on third graders So while I was kinda meh on his other recent book I was interested in this because it's received some good attention has a co author and it just happened to be a new release at my libraryThe premise of the book is that American politics and society has fractured and that significant fault lines have exacerbated the problems since Watergate The authors point to issues of distrust in government racial and gender injustice changes in media and economic problems and ineuality all fine reasons The first few pages are about these general issues in the 1970s Then the book just feels like a rundown of things that happened from Reagan un

    READER Æ TEXT Fault Lines Fault LinesI'm sorry to say I was a little lukewarm on this book It's a fine overview and it's written clearly which would make it a good book to teach from but I was really struck by how closely the first 100 pages resemble Bruce Schulman's The Seventies and the 1980s and 1990s parts are very similar to Gil Troy's Morning in America and The Age of Clinton as well as the CNN decade documentaries It's not plagiarism exactly but it doesn't offer a new perspective and it actually fel

    READER Æ TEXT Fault Lines Fault Lines25 starsA perfectly okay book but largely forgettable So forgettable I forgot to add it to my list of books It took me about a week to read itFault Lines was written by academics and it reads as such I generally prefer the works of historians or journalists and books like this are the reason why The passages were overly long and not particularly engaging My tastes are pretty ordinary I did enjoy certain portions see highlights particularly the recent historical sectionsAt first I thought the book would overlap significantly with Tailspin by Steven Brill; both books talk about the decline of America from the past several decades to the present Some points were the same but th
