Authors: Donald K. Sharpes (Professor, Emeritus College, Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, US, and Senior Visiting Fellow at Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK) 
Book Description:
This book is a chronicle of the astonishing rise of Donald Trump, and reveals the personality and policies of the 45th president throughout the presidential campaign and the early months of the administration. The early chapters in the first section record his lies and deceits, his fumbles and failures, his mishaps and mistakes, his continuing ignorance and idiocies. Sections also include indictments of Congressís hypocrisy in not condemning Trumpís errant and misguided policies, in tolerating his endorsement of white supremacist activities and dangerous Russian intrusions into the U.S. electoral process. The general voting public is also to blame for electing such a toxic personality as our Commander-in-Chief and Americaís representative to the world.

A second section describes the libertarian philosophy and its ongoing influence in our political process, Steven Bannonís influence on Trumpís domestic policies, and details historical parallels of Trump to events during the Andrew Jackson administration. The following chapters describe ancient philosophical principles of Plato and Aristotle that highlight how the management of the state can proceed with virtue as its chief governing principle. A final chapter describes selected historical revolts that have reshaped the national character, and an epilogue concludes with an assessment of how democracy can descend into chaos and uncertainty and still rebound.
