What Were We Thinking: A Brief Intellectual History of the Trump Era
Survey. I thought I read a lot of books about the rise of Donald Trump, the factors that led to his election, and his presidency. Washington Post book critic Carlos Lozado beat me by a mile with the 150 or so books that he consumed on this subject. In his engaging book titled, What Were We Thinking: A Brief Intellectual History of the Trump Era, Lozado assembles what he read into themes and offers a survey of the books relating to those themes. While there have been many books on this subject, much of the history of this time will take time to be written. In the meantime, those readers interested in public policy will find this survey interesting to read while time passes, should any appetite for this subject remain.
