In the wake of Brexit Britain and Trump’s America, David Goodhart conducts a timely and compelling investigation into the political and moral fault-lines that divide us. The Road to Somewhere considers an emerging global politics where the traditional Left/Right divide has been challenged by a new division: between the mobile – achieved – identity of the people from Anywhere, and the marginalised, roots-based identity of the people from Somewhere.
David Goodhart was a correspondent for the Financial Times for twelve years before founding cultural affairs magazine Prospect.
