Still Crazy After All These Years

February 20, 2018 Foreign Affairs

Professor Jim Morone reviews Fantasyland, a new book by Kurt Andersen, in Foreign Affairs. "As Andersen shows, fantastical thinking has always played an outsize role in American culture. But something seems different today. Running beneath the parade of con artists and manias that Andersen deftly catalogs glints something more dangerous than illusions: a bitter contest over national identity that political institutions may no longer be able to contain."
