Summary:
Kane explores ten dynamics of American politics and society that played a role in the 2016 presidential election and continue to exert an influence on current politics. He examines both the present impact of the Trump presidency and the future trajectories of the trends that brought Trump to power. Some of these dynamics have deep historical roots, but he also considers the effect of changing demographics. Kane also discusses the role of the media, accountability, globalization, the future of bipartisanship, and more. -- adapted from jacket
