Summary
Serwer chronicles the Trump administration not as an aberration but as an outgrowth of the inequalities the United States was founded on. Serwer is less interested in the presidential spectacle than in the ideological and structural currents behind Trump<U+2019>s rise<U+2014>including a media that was often blindsided by the ugly realities of what the administration represented and how it came to be. Serwer<U+2019>s writing is haunted by ghosts of an unresolved American past, a past that torments the present. In bracing new essays and previously published works, he explores white nationalism, myths about migration, the political power of police unions, and the many faces of anti-Semitism. For all the dynamics he examines, cruelty is the glue, the binding agent of a movement fueled by fear and exclusion. Serwer argues that rather than pretending these four years didn<U+2019>t happen or dismissing them as a brief moment of madness, we must face what made them possible
