The Space Between Us

The Space Between Us

“This rigorous, insightful, and often poignant book will change how you see the world and your place in it.”

          – Joshua Greene

Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of Moral Tribes: Emotion, Reason, and the Gap Between Us and Them

The Space Between Us brings the connection between geography, psychology, and politics to life. By going into the neighborhoods of real cities, Enos shows how our perceptions of racial, ethnic, and religious groups are intuitively shaped by where these groups live and interact daily. His accessible writing makes even the most rigorous of social science research widely appealing in this timely book.
