a field guide to the most dangerous people in America
Donald Trump has assembled a rogue's gallery of alt-right hatemongers, crony capitalists, immigrant bashers, and climate-change deniers to run the American government. To survive the next four years, we the people need to know whose hands are on the levers of power-- and how to challenge their abuses. Nichols has been covering many of these deplorables for decades, and now he digs deep into the histories and ideologies of the people who make up Trump's inner circle
