About the Book:
In this wise and provocative book, Emily Mathews grounds her intelligent policy philosophy in common sense, which is particularly refreshing as our political structure grows increasingly dysfunctional. At a time in our nation’s history when the only focus should be the shared goal of productive progress, the author shows why we are in a political standoff that stifles all desire for compromise, represses productive political conversation, and prevents our country from being the very best it can be. Ms. Mathews’ innovative thought process collides with her talent for entertaining storytelling. The result is a book that you cannot put down. Carefully researched and deeply affecting, Road Kill responds to America’s political impasse with a resounding call for a radically transforming approach.
