Product description

Review

“All but the most determined Trump enthusiasts should feel pin pricks of recognition and...a queasy discomfort.” (New York Times)

“A far more rewarding book than Fire and Fury.” (Financial Times)

“Magnificent.…The wisdom of the final chapter in particular absolutely floored me.” (Laurence Tribe)

“No conservative has been a more astute, unsparing or courageous critic of Trumpism than David Frum. Trumpocracy is a powerful summation of the case against Trump based on a close reading of his first year in office. Even those who have followed the Trump administration closely will find much to surprise and enrage them in Frum’s devastating analysis.A must-read to understand what we went through in 2017--and where we are going next.” (Max Boot, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick senior fellow in national security studies, Council on Foreign Relations)

“With precision and even eloquence, Frum details how the Trump campaign and administration has damaged American institutions and the American psyche. For those who oppose Trumpism, this is a clarion call.” (Booklist)

 “The most important new book about the dangers of Donald Trump’s presidency” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“In the midst of all the Trump-fueled hysteria and Trump-related gossip, it’s a godsend to have David Frum lay out the case against Trump and his kleptocracy in this measured, insightful, and scrupulously researched book. He builds his argument with the precision of a prosecuting attorney, and writes about it in the riveting style of a thriller writer.  This is an essential guide to the malevolent tragedy that is Trumpocracy.” (Robert De Niro)

“Fascism did not rise in the 30’s because it was strong but rather because Democracy was weak. David Frum has written an essential book for a time when the pillars and norms of American Democracy are under threat from the leaders pledged to preserve it.” (Stephen Schmidt, strategist for George W. Bush, John Mccain, and Arnold Schwarzenegger)

“An outstanding chronicle of the unending corruption, deceit, and chaos that acts as rocket fuel for the administration, and ego, of President Donald J. Trump. This is a brilliant book of a frightening American present, it is also an honest discussion of the gifts a Trump Presidency has unwittingly revealed.” (Malcolm Nance, author of The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and Wikileaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election)

“Frum charts the erosion of democratic principles over the course of Donald Trump’s campaign and first year in office, enumerating both the president’s own improprieties and the misdeeds of his various advisers and hangers-on. Frum’s incisive prose and optimism set this apart.” (Publishers Weekly)

From the Back Cover

From Russia to South Africa, from Turkey to the Philippines, from Venezuela to Hungary, authoritarian leaders have smashed restraints on their power. The freedom of the media and the judiciary have eroded. The right to vote remains, but the right to have one’s vote counted honestly does not.

Until the US presidential election of 2016, the global decline of democracy seemed a concern for other peoples in other lands. That complacent optimism has been upended by the political rise of Donald Trump. 

The crisis is upon Americans, here and now.

Quietly, steadily, Trump and his administration are damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy, perhaps irrevocably. As he and his family enrich themselves, the presidency itself falls into the hands of the generals and financiers who surround him. 

David Frum has been collecting the lies, obfuscations, and flagrant disregard for the traditional limits placed on the office of the presidency. During his own tenure in the White House as speechwriter for George W. Bush, Frum witnessed the ways the presidency was limited not by law but tradition, propriety, and public outcry, all now weakened. Whether the Trump presidency lasts two, four, or seven more years, the nature of the office has changed for the worse, and will likely remain so for decades. 

In this powerful, eye-opening book, Frum makes clear that the hard work of recovery starts at home. Trumpocracy outlines how Trump could push America toward illiberalism, what the consequences could be for our nation and the world, and what we can do to prevent it.
