內容簡介



「瘋狂的小丑」川普當選美國總統後,世界將會何去何從?
美國最犀利政治線記者完整記錄總統大選,精闢解析民主與政治體制

《滾石》雜誌專欄作家麥特.塔伊比(Matt Taibbi)集結2016年來記錄美國總統大選的專欄文章,詳細解析川普當選對美國民主與社會的政治意含。

如馬戲團表演般的2016年美國總統大選,從希拉蕊瑕疵且缺乏目標的競選活動、另類右派(alt-right)的崛起、到媒體報導的怪象……等荒腔走板的異象,都圍繞著集希特勒與喜劇演員於一身的川普運行。作者以犀利中帶有苦中作樂的幽默筆觸,藉由完整記錄川普現象,探討更宏大的主題──美國民主與政治體制的崩解,精闢分析美國何以走到這一步。

當表面工夫凌駕於真實之上、當共同現實不復存在、當白人勞工階級反叛、當政治體制死亡……從悲喜劇般的發跡,到末日般的結局,這是美國民主崩解的輓歌,也是西方文明觸礁的故事。

"The thing is, when you actually think about it, it's not funny. Given what's at stake, it's more like the opposite, like the first sign of the collapse of the United States as a global superpower. Twenty years from now, when we're all living like prehistory hominids and hunting rats with sticks, we'll probably look back at this moment as the beginning of the end."

In this groundbreaking battery of dispatches from the heartland of America, Matt Taibbi tells the full story of the Trump phenomenon, from its tragi-comic beginnings to the apocalyptic election. Full of sharp, on-the-ground reporting and gallows humour, his incisive analysis goes beyond the bizarre and disturbing election to tell a wider story of the apparent collapse of American democracy. Taibbi saw the essential themes right from the start: the power of spectacle over truth; the end of a shared reality on the left and right; the nihilistic rebellion of the white working class; the death of the political establishment; and the emergence of a new, explicit form of white nationalism.

From the thwarted Bernie Sanders insurgency to the aimless Hillary Clinton campaign, across the flailing media coverage and the trampled legacy of Obama, this is the story of ordinary voters forced to bear witness to the whole charade. At the centre of it all, "a bumbling train wreck of a candidate who belched and preened his way past a historically weak field" who, improbably, has taken control of the world's most powerful nation.

This is essential and hilarious reading that explores how the new America understands itself, and about the future of the world just beyond the horizon.
