The 2016 election highlighted a number of political divisions within the United States. One of the starkest was the fault line that runs between the rural and urban regions of the country.

In a new book, political scientist Jonathan Rodden traces the history of this geographical split and explores the profound consequences for politics in the U.S. His book is titled, “Why Cities Lose: The Deep Roots of the Urban-Rural Political Divide.”
