American Discontent

The Rise of Donald Trump and Decline of the Golden Age

John L. Campbell

  • Emphasizes the deep structural and historical factors that enabled Trump's rise to power, rather than more immediate factors
  • Grounded in the underlying economic and political changes in America that stretch back decades, American Discontent provides a short, accessible, and nonpartisan guide to Trump's rise to power
  • Argues that only long-developing trends in the American economy, race relations, ideology and politics stretching back to the 1970s can explain Trump's rise to power
