It is a week after Trump arrived in the United Kingdom as part of his very shocking set of visits to his foreign counterparts, and perhaps you are still trying to make sense of what exactly went on. This may be, then, the perfect time to pre-order the Monroe Group’s first edited collection: The Trump Presidency – From Campaign Trial to World Stage, edited by our very own Mara Oliva and Mark Shanahan

This edited collection delves into the key aspects of the Trump campaign promises around immigration, trade, social and foreign policy, and unpicks how the first year of the presidency has played out in delivering them. It charts his first year from both historical and contemporary political standpoints, and in the context of comparative pieces stacking Trump’s performance against Gold-standard presidents such as Reagan, Kennedy and the last ‘outsider’, Eisenhower. Focusing in on a number of key elements of the presidency in depth, it offers a unique perspective on a presidency like no other, drawing on the overriding themes of populism, nativist nationalism and the battle for disengagement from the neoliberal power generation.
