Kill all normies - the online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right by Nagle, Angela, author. Kill all normies - the online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right

"Recent years have seen a revival of the heated culture wars of the 1990s, but this time its battle ground is the internet. On one side the alt right ranges from the once obscure neo-reactionary and white separatist movements, to geeky subcultures like 4chan, to more mainstream manifestations such as the Trump-supporting gay libertarian Milo Yiannopolous.

Thinking about the ways in which economic policy, racism, and militarized policing combine to shape the city, Lake Michigan's poems explore the themes of estrangement, state violence and capitalist exploitation, and take a hard look at neoliberal urbanism in the historic city of Chicago.

Left behind - decline and rage in rural America by Wuthnow, Robert, author. Left behind - decline and rage in rural America

"What is fueling rural America's outrage toward the federal government? Why did rural Americans vote overwhelmingly for Donald Trump?

Drawing on more than a decade of research and hundreds of interviews, Robert Wuthnow brings us into America's small towns, farms, and rural communities to paint a rich portrait of the moral order--the interactions, loyalties, obligations, and ident
