Disrespectful Democracy: A Book Analysis

We recommend this book because it provides a fully grounded psychological perspective of incivility that has been lacking in the discussion of incivility in politics. Disrespectful Democracy does a great job in contributing to the discussion, such as why some people engage in incivility and why some people tend to shy away from it. This book appeals to the academic who wants to see the research done to back up claims, and provides in depth information about the research done, as well as the casual or curious person who wants to know more about incivility.
