Summary, etc.:
Provides a collection of essays warning of the consequences of doing too little as Trump and the so-called alt-right relentlessly attack critics, journalists, and target the hard earned civil rights of women, people of color, immigrants, the working class, and low-income Americans. As we face down the reality of living under a system that serves only the interests of the wealthy few, Giroux makes a plea for ordinary citizens to organize, educate, and resist by all available means. --From publisher description.
