Beschrijving The Politics of Truth in Polarized America

In American politics, the truth is rapidly losing relevance. The public square is teeming with misinformation, conspiracy theories, cynicism, and hubris. Why has this happened? What does it mean? What can we do about it? In this volume, leading scholars offer multiple perspectives on these questions, and many more, to provide the first comprehensive empirical examination of the "politics of truth" — its context, causes, and potential correctives. With experts in
social science weighing in, this volume examines different drivers such as the dynamics of politically motivated fact perceptions.

Combining insights from the fields of political science, political theory, communication, and psychology and offering substantial new arguments and evidence, these chapters draw compelling — if sometimes competing — conclusions regarding this rising democratic threat.
