James Davison Hunter and Pete Wehner: Democracy in Dark Times

Faith Angle

James Davison Hunter, one of the nation's foremost sociologists, sits down with NYT and Atlantic contributor Pete Wehner for a big-think conversation about our present cultural moment. A new IASC survey of 2,205 Americans, which James recently co-authored, argues that present-day American fracture along racial, religious, and political lines is more culturally profound and consequential than we think. With that springboard James offers a "climatological" view of present-day reality.
