In this provocative book, Mugambi Jouet describes why Americans are far more divided than other Westerners over basic issues, such as wealth inequality, health care, climate change, evolution, abortion, gay rights, sex, gun control, mass incarcer-ation, the death penalty, and war. Raised in Paris by a French mother and Kenyan father, Jouet then lived in the Bible Belt, Manhattan, and beyond. Drawing inspira-tion from Alexis de Tocqueville, he wields his multicultural sensibility to parse how the intense polarization of U.S. conserva-tives and liberals has become a key dimension of American exceptionalism an idea widely misunderstood as Ameri-can superiority. While exceptionalism once was a source of strength, it may now spell decline. Unique aspects of U.S. history, politics, law, culture, religion, and race relations foster intriguing social problems, anti-intellectualism, conspiracy-mongering, and a visceral suspicion of government. Exceptional America dissects the Ameri-can soul, in all of its peculiar, clashing, and striking manifestations.
