She traveled to Louisiana to complete a five-year study, talking to members of the Tea Party and attempting to breach the “empathy wall” that stands between conservatives and liberals.   A compassionate observer, Hochschild pursues the heart of the “deeper story,” blaming the narrative—not her subjects—that informs these peoples’ choices. She particularly examines the long history of environmental pollution in the region and the state governments’ failure to address it—a failure that this political faction refuses to condemn.  Strangers in Their Own Land is a compelling analysis of one of the most important factors in American culture today, and Hochschild’s measured and empathic approach leads her readers toward a greater understanding of their fellow citizens.   The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

    Romance is everywhere even in blockbuster movies like Terminator and Star Wars. Strong romantic plots drove TV shows like Castle, Moonlighting, and Cheers to top ratings. It was the sexual tension that viewers to tuned in each week to find out if this would be the episode they finally acted on their attraction or not. Twitter blew up when Sheldon and Amy finally kissed on The Big Bang Theory, then blew up all over again when they consummated their relationship.
    
     
    Writing romance and sex can be tricky. You’re not writing a how-to manual after all. In this book you’ll learn how to create sexual tension, how to write sex scenes, and how to plot a romance that will have readers staying up until the wee hours to finish and closing your novel on a happy sigh.
