The book takes on the measure of the Democratic Party and mainstream liberal organizations, who have shown themselves to be completely inadequate to address the key questions facing working people today. It further seeks to understand the Trump phenomenon in the international context of rising right-wing populism emerging from the aftermath of the 2008 Great Recession.
