Summary
"American Blindspot: Race, Class, Religion, and the Trump Presidency" is a careful exploration of the forces that led to the election of the 45th president of the United States. Gerardo Marti synthesizes the latest scholarship and historical research to examine the roles that race, class, and religion have played in politics -- both historically and today. This book goes beyond the initial claims that the American working class was the force behind Donald Trump's election or policies and instead offers a nuanced perspective on how race, religion, and class have shaped our national views, Trump's election, and his policies. -- From publisher's description
