May 17 Exceptional America

exceptional2What divides Americans from the world and from each other?

Stanford Law professor Mugambi Jouet will discuss his new book Exceptional America which tackles why Americans are far more divided than other Westerners over basic issues, including wealth inequality, health care, climate change, evolution, gender roles, abortion, gay rights, sex, gun control, mass incarceration, the death penalty, torture, human rights, and war.

Why is America so polarized? How does American exceptionalism explain these social changes?

Read chapter 1 of the book.

Mugambi Jouet teaches at Stanford Law School and is a frequent media commentator. His research focuses on U.S. criminal law, constitutional law, and policymaking from a multidisciplinary perspective encompassing history, sociology, political science, and the humanities.
