Abstract: The talk will be on a forthcoming book co-authored with Nathan Kalmoe titled “Radical American Partisanship: Mapping Violent Hostility, Its Causes, & What It Means for Democracy.” The book is a study of radicalism among ordinary American partisans, including demonization, violent political attitudes and behaviors, and a win-at-all costs mentality that undermines democratic elections. Just how extreme have partisans in the public become? What drives their radicalism? And what role do they play in maintaining democracy or violently undermining it?
