I just added two books to the Recommended Reading section: Timothy Snyder’s On Tranny and Nancy Isenberg’s White Trash.
They are very different. Yale professor Snyder’s On Tranny is a very short book broken into twenty points. It compares the rise of communism in what was the Soviet Union and fascism in what was Nazi Germany to the rise of several (including Donald Trump) current politicians.
LSU professor Isenberg’s White Trash is a long scholarly work that could be used as a Sociology text. Her work explores the history of race and class in American history.
