The Trump Carnival

Building on the idea of the carnivalesque, this book focuses on the laughing culture of the Trump campaigns and presidency that vilified minorities, disparaged women, and ultimately emboldened the far right.

This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the Trump phenomenon, American politics, and populism.
