Whether it's in the local, national or international arena, there are huge divisions both within and between political parties, and views and values fluctuate wildly across society. Nobody seems able to agree. Nobody even seems able to agree to disagree. So, what can we do? In this book, we'll look at how we can discuss divisive topics more effectively. We'll examine the different modes and methods of discourse and analysis and, through examining some of the common obstacles to productive conversations, we discuss actionable ways to encourage positive, helpful debate.
