"It will take a miracle" -- "Where's my Steve?" -- Bildungsroman -- "A dangerous way to look at the world" -- Nobody builds walls like Trump -- The alt-Kochs -- A rolling tumbleweed of wounded male id and aggression -- "The traffic is absolutely filthy!" -- "Honest populism" -- Burn everything down -- "The FBI has learned of the existence ..." -- Afterword: Kali Yuga.
Summary: The shocking elevation of Steve Bannon to head Trump's flagging presidential campaign on August 17, 2016, hit political Washington like a thunderclap and seemed to signal the meltdown of the Republican Party. Bannon was a bomb-throwing pugilist who'd never run a campaign and was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike. Yet Bannon's hard-edged ethno-nationalism and his elaborate, years-long plot to destroy Hillary Clinton paved the way for Trump's unlikely victory. Trump became the avatar of a dark but powerful worldview that dominated the airwaves and spoke to voters whom others couldn't see. Trump's campaign was the final phase of a populist insurgency that had been building up in America for years, and Bannon, its inscrutable mastermind, believed it was the culmination of a hard-right global uprising that would change the world. From the reporter who was there at the very beginning comes the revealing inside story of the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump -- the key to understanding the rise of the alt-right, the fall of Hillary Clinton, and the hidden forces that drove the greatest upset in American political history. Based on dozens of interviews conducted over six years, Green spins the master narrative of the 2016 campaign from its origins in the far fringes of right-wing politics and reality television to its culmination inside Trump's penthouse on election night.
