Arlie Russell Hochschild

Seeing America through the eyes of the conservative right.

Sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild explores the "deep story" of American conservatism - a set of racial fears and anti-government resentments driven by economic anxiety - and calls for empathy and engagement with the right, and a Democratic party return to policies addressing the realities of working people in an era of globalization.

Arlie is author of the new book Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right from The New Press.
