A New York Times Bestseller! Bestselling author, former White House speechwriter, and Atlantic columnist and media commentator David Frum explains why President Trump has undermined our most important institutions in ways even the most critical media has missed, in this thoughtful and hard-hitting book that is a warning for democracy and America's future. "From Russia to South Africa, from Turkey to the Philippines, from Venezuela to Hungary, authoritarian leaders have smashed restraints on their power. Media freedom and judicial independence have eroded. The right to vote remains, but the right to have one's vote counted fairly may 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. While much of the country has been focused on Russia, David Frum has been collecting the lies, obfuscations, and flagrant disregard for the traditional limits placed on the office of the presidency. In Trumpocracy, he documents how Trump and his administration are steadily damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy. During his own White House tenure as George W. Bush's speechwriter, Frum witnessed the ways the presidency is limited not by law but by tradition, propriety, and public outcry, all now weakened. Whether the Trump presidency lasts two, four, or eight more years, he has changed the nature of the office for the worse, and likely for decades. In this powerful and 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 our everyday lives, and what we can do to prevent it.… (plus d'informations)

The title of this book, "Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic", makes it clear that Mr. Frum has strongly anti-Trump views. While a former Bush speechwriter with conservative credentials, Frum's book will not appeal to Trump supporters. It will, however, appeal to Trump opponents, as it details example after example of how Trump disregards the traditional limits of the Office, how Trump ignores facts and truths. continues to trample on American values and norms, and is a destructive force to our democracy.

Excellent, last chapter is the starting point. Rest a bit repetitous and dated by new events. Next edition should be good. ( )

This conservative author sets forth the damage that Trump and his enablers have done to our country and the office of the Presidency. The level of lying, ignorance, corruption, criminality and cruelty is astounding - and unfortunately it has become such a common, everyday thing with Trump that we run the risk of becoming numb to the outrage. This we cannot do. We must resist, and we must rescue our country from this downward spiral. The book is intelligently written and provides hope for the future in the last chapter. I would recommend it. ( )

Written by a self-declared conservative and member of the GOP, this book gives a very good analysis of everything that is wrong about Donald Trump and the corrupt system that got him elected.
Well-written and very informative. ( )
  hulswit | Aug 8, 2018 |
In so many ways, a painful and rather discouraging book. It is startling to see how quickly Donald Trump has managed to exploit, then upset, American politics and government. But I strive to take heart from the Trumpian 'gifts' author Frum enumerates in his last chapter, "Hope" : (1) A wider vision. (2)Rediscovery of the preciousness of truth. (3) The bully is a coward. (4) The Republican Party will outlast Trump. (4) The forward momentum of European authoritarians has been checked. (5) A surge in civic spirit. -- The book is well-written, copiously documented, and worthwhile. ( )
