White Rural Rage by Tom Schaller and Paul Waldman

Staff Pick

To understand Trump's rise, you need to understand white, rural rage. Schaller's book provides an engaging and well researched investigation into the historical, economic, social, and moral shifts that have radicalized rural voters, revealing how the GOP has capitalized on the greatest political opportunity imaginable: a devoted base of hardline supporters who don’t care if their government delivers services or helps their communities. Paying particular attention to former Obama strongholds that now align themselves with Trump, Schaller demystifies the profound illogic of MAGA conservatism.
