“Brooks beholds America’s 21st-century tribal feuds… with a clear, intelligent eye and a hospitable attitude… Only transcendence can open the way to better solutions down the road.” The New York Times

At a time of historic polarization, public leaders and ordinary citizens alike are wondering how to fight back against the bitterness and contempt washing over America. Drawing on history, cutting-edge social science and a decade of experience leading the American Enterprise Institute, one of the nation’s preeminent think tanks, Arthur C. Brooks shows that what the country needs is not agreement, but better disagreement. Brooks is a Harvard professor, a columnist for The Atlantic, the bestselling author of 11 books on topics ranging from economic opportunity to human happiness and the subject of the hit documentary The Pursuit. His recent bestseller, Love Your Enemies, is a guide to building a better country and mending personal relationships amidst our culture of political polarization.

This presentation will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Katya Armistead, UC Santa Barbara Assistant Vice Chancellor & Dean of Student Life.
