    Spectacle and Trumpism

    This radical and experimental book advances a new approach to understanding spectacle, one that helps us better understand how consumer culture paved the way for the post-truth politics of Donald Trump.

    Miller innovatively blends social and political theory, newspaper articles and contemporary commentary on Trump and Trumpism to provide a unique perspective on how capitalism intersects with and enables fascistic forms of power.

    His analysis contributes fresh insights to the rise of Trump and the politics of everyday consumer culture today.

    “Thirty years ago, Félix Guattari likened Trump to an algal bloom, crowding out other lifeforms across entire city districts. Miller examines our predicament as this process assumes global proportions…” David Clarke, Swansea University

    Jacob C. Miller is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at Northumbria University.
