Drawn from the Mind of State podcast created by some of the co-authors and contributors to the New York Times bestseller, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, this compilation of conversations helps fit together the broken pieces of our American psycho-political jigsaw puzzle.


The Mind of State interviews are as relevant now as they were when Apple Podcasts featured the series as "New and Noteworthy" in 2019. These nuanced discussions offer insights and reflections from leading experts - on psychology, politics, race, religion, and more - to those of us struggling to make sense of our American political nonsense.


The book's chapters are divided into five sections that reveal persistent themes underlying our increasing distress, due to the interconnectedness of psychology and politics in the United States:


Why Truth Matters * Anxieties Of Race & Dominance * Acknowledging Death, Trauma & Loss * The Importance Of Myth In Politics * Democracy At Risk
