In “Cold Civil War”, Jim Belcher argues that America has fallen into a state of polarization, creating gridlock and preventing any form of real progress. Drawing on the work of Martin Luther King Jr., he offers a way out of this impasse by exploring ways to overcome our differences and discover unity. With examples from current events, business, and beyond, Belcher provides readers with both a historical perspective on the problem and steps for healing our wounded nation.
