About the Author

DAVID FRENCH is a senior writer at National Review, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, and the author or co-author of several books, most recently Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can't Ignore, a New York Times bestseller.


In his admirably measured book Divided We Fall, French convincingly argues that polarization is putting America on a perilous path to disunion. --James Kirchick, New York Times Book Review

French makes a powerful case that the country could be heading toward dissolution--not so much a hot civil war as a bitter domestic cold war leading to an acrimonious divorce through secession. --Jonah Goldberg, The Dispatch

World Magazine's 'Understanding America Book of the Year.' The United States is more polarized than at any time since the Civil War. The highly discussed book that best recognizes that--and proposes what to do--is David French's Divided We Fall: America's Secession Threat and How To Restore Our Nation. --World Magazine French laments conspiracy-minded rhetoric from both the right and the left in this incisive examination of contemporary political polarization. This well-informed and often moving account provides an antidote to the ills of political partisanship. --Publishers Weekly

[French is] not calling on us to agree--just to continue disagreeing without destroying ourselves. --Carlos Lozada, Washington Post French presents a vision for how the country can come together again and embrace national unity. --Mackenzie Dawson, New York Post In a season of sharp contrasts between red and blue and with a major election looming, French's book is a timely and necessary read. Even those who don't quite believe in the imminent danger of secession will appreciate his call to renewed courage and character. He offers a timeless reminder of the importance of justice, mercy and humility toward one another--imperfect people in an imperfect world, still hoping for a more perfect union. --Terri Barnes, Stars and Stripes French's book is important because he has his eyes fixed on the real or most fundamental problem confronting American democracy, and because he doesn't allow himself to get sucked into or distracted by the more superficial conflicts that feed into that problem and make it worse...deserves to be widely read and debated among those who would help America avoid the worst of its many possible futures. --Damon Linker, The Week
