Summary
In the backlash conservatism of the Trump era, physician Jonathan M. Metzl argues that lower- and middle-class white Americans who vote for policies that promise to protect their embattled 'way of life', in fact damage their own health and well-being. Through focus groups and interviews with ordinary Americans and statistical analysis of population health and life expectancy, Metzl shows how anti-government and pro-gun policies win support due to white racial resentment, and how such policies raise mortality risks for white Americans and for our society as a whole
