Description

Shana Kushner Gadarian and Bethany Albertson are the authors of Anxious Politics: Democratic Citizenship in a Threatening World (Cambridge UP, 2015). Gadarian is assistant professor of political science at Syracuse University; Albertson is assistant professor of government at the University of Texas, Austin.
Anxious Politics explores the emotional side of politics. Albertson and Gadarian argue that political anxiety triggers politics engagement in ways that are potentially both promising and harmful for democracy. Using public health, immigration, terrorism, and climate change, the book demonstrates that anxiety affects how we consume political news, who we trust, and what politics we support. Anxiety about politics triggers coping strategies in the political world, where these strategies are often shaped by partisan agendas.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
