One Nation, Two Realities by Morgan Marietta

One Nation, Two Realities
Dueling Facts in American Democracy
Oxford University Press 2019

American Society is deeply divided-not just on values and opinions but on basic perceptions of reality. In their latest book, co-authors Morgan Marietta and David Barker attribute such division to the human tendency towards having different versions of reality. The authors introduce the concept of 'dueling fact perceptions' based on years of research.

Morgan Marietta, Associate Professor of Political Science at UML studies the political consequences of belief. His prior books include The Politics of Sacred Rhetoric: Absolutist Appeals and Political Influence and A Citizen's Guide to American Ideology: Conservatism and Liberalism in Contemporary Politics. He and co-author David Barker write the "Inconvenient Facts" blog at Psychology Today.
