Behind the self-confident image of world’s most influential country, we now see a nation tearing itself apart, its people angry and afraid. The United States may arguably be the world’s only superpower, but its internal tensions are a symptom of suffering and deep division, conditions only exacerbated by the election of President Donald Trump.
Friedman examines the real America through the words of its citizens and combines this with a detailed portrait of the new President and his team. Making use of his own interviews and meetings with Trump and with Russia’s President Putin, Friedman analyses the root causes of America’s condition and explores the real risks of a Trump presidency for America and the world.
Dark and provocative, This Is Not America may just be the most important book of the year.
