Product description


'The unthinkable has happened: Donald Trump is now President of the United States. We can condemn, dismiss, and ridicule him. But it makes more sense to understand him. This short book uses his lifeworld and his own language to do so, and offers an insightful and compelling account of his world view, and especially his view of foreign affairs. For anybody who wants to know what makes Trump tick and how he is likely to behave this is an absolutely must read.' - Richard Ned Lebow, James O. Freedman Presidential Professor Emeritus of Government, Dartmouth College, 'This book does a great service in identifying the genesis of President Trump's worldview, based on his words, and considering its likely impact on the future of American foreign policy and the western alliance.' - Professor John Bew, author of Realpolitik: A History, 'In this insightful study, Laderman and Simms expose the contours of Donald Trump's thinking on foreign policy and explore its roots in US history since 1945. This book refutes the widespread view that Trump can simply be dismissed as an improviser and a showman. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the Trump presidency and what it means for the rest of us.' - Sir Christopher Clark, author of Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914, 'Highly recommend this study of the development of Trump's foreign policy world view... Instant and powerful illumination!' --Adam Tooze, author of The Deluge: The Great War and the Remaking of Global Order

The historians Charlie Laderman and Brendan Simms show in a new book, since the 1980s Trump has developed a consistent worldview. It is highly critical of the dominant US global strategy since 1945 of building and maintaining a liberal capitalist international order. --Alex Callinicos, Socialist Worker

The most comprehensive account yet of Trump's thinking over the years. --Paul D. Miller, American Interest
