In his follow-up tot he bestselling The Road to Somewhere, David Goodhart divides society into people who work with their Heads (cognitive work), with their Hands (manual work), and with their hearts (caring work), and considers each group's changing status and influences. Today the "best and the brightest" trump the "decent and hardworking." Other qualities like character, craft, integrity, physical labor, and compassion command far less respect. This imbalance has led to the disaffection and alienation of millions of people. How did we get here? Goodhart, one of the boldest thinkers on the political shocks of recent years, reveals the untold history behind this disparity and outlines the challenges we face as a result. This is the dramatic story of the struggle for status and dignity in the twenty-first century.
