The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity

CNN's Sally Kohn has a talent for making friends across the political aisle. While establishing herself as a leading progressive voice as a commentator on Fox News, she went head-to-head with her colleagues on divisive issues, engaging in heated arguments but also developing unexpected friendships. But since the 2016 election & the epidemic of hate that surrounded it, Kohn began to wonder: Where did all this hate come from & how can we get beyond it?

Drawing upon cutting-edge research from psychology, sociology, & the neurosciences, & from examples in history & even today's twitter trolls, Kohn uncovers the evolutionary & cultural roots of hate in its most subtle & obvious forms--from implicit bias to racism to genocide. She travels across the country & worldwide for exclusive interviews with fascinating & inspiring people who have left hate behind, including a former white supremacist who is now a practicing Buddhist & a former Palestinian terrorist who now works with Israelis to forge understanding & peace. With her trademark humor, intelligence, & wit, Kohn boldly confronts her own prejudices & suggests that we all share some responsibility. She offers concrete tools for combating the crisis of hate sweeping our nation, showing readers the power of connection & our shared humanity.

At a moment when bitter partisan politics have divided Americans, The Opposite of Hate is a thought-provoking & ultimately hopeful look at one of the most pressing issues of our time.

Sally Kohn is one of the leading progressive voices in America today. She is a CNN political commentator, writer, activist, podcast host, & author. Her work has appeared in the Washington Post, New York Times, New York Magazine, More Magazine, RollingStone.com, Elle.com, USA Today, Time, Afar Magazine & many other outlets.
