About the book

Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right

Strangers In Their Own Land by Arlie Russell Hochschild book cover
ISBN 9781620972250 The New Press

Strangers in Their Own Land goes beyond the commonplace liberal idea that these are people who have been duped into voting against their own interests. Instead, Hochschild finds lives ripped apart by stagnant wages, a loss of home, an elusive American dream—and political choices and views that make sense in the context of their lives.
