This book introduces the concept of political tribes by briefly discussing the tribes that are players in the problems of Brexit, France, Germany and Trump. Then it devotes more extensively the past errors of American foreign policy because of our ignorance of tribes in Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Venezuela (America's foreign policy "experts" too Anglo centric to understand how to deal with the tribalism?). The book then briefly discusses the two basic tribes in America - the white working class in middle-America/the South and the more diverse class basically in the two coasts and in the urban areas.
