In America

by Caitríona Perry | 20 April 2018
While much of the US media and the professional political classes whip themselves into a frenzy as to how President Trump got into office and how he is behaving there, the views that really matter - as always - are those of the voters. In her first book, RTÉ's former Washington Correspondent Caitríona Perry goes beyond the news reports and delves into the American heartland where she witnessed the rise of Donald Trump at first hand. Speaking to the people who voted for President Trump, she brings to the table the voices of the American people who, too-long ignored and on the edges of an increasingly divided society, rallied their votes and shook the world. In speaking to the workers of the industrial heartland, the women of America, the voices of the immigrant communities, In America answers the question everyone is asking in the wake of one of the most shocking election results in modern times - how did this happen? A new afterword reflects on Donald Trump's presidency to date and revisits the people spoken to in 2016, giving a valuable insight into what we can expect from election 2020. Top 10 book on the Donald Trump presidency. The Independent, UK Nominated for the BGEIBAS Non-Fiction Book of the Year Award 'An illuminating travelogue which helps to shed some light on the multifarious reasons why ordinary voters backed the reality TV star.' The Independent (UK). 'A revealing and insightful piece of reportage by a journalist who refuses to become part of the story.' The Sunday Business Post 'In America is a worthwhile and eminently readable book ... the version of Trump's America that Perry presents brings many essential and revealing factors into sharp focus.' The Irish Times 'A tour-de-force analysis of the current state of play in American politics.' Larry Donnelly, political commentator and lecturer in the School of Law at NUIG 'Spellbindingly good. Journeying across America, Caitríona Perry masterfully takes us into the hearts and minds of those who voted for Donald Trump. A triumph of a book.' Prof. Gary Murphy, Head of the School of Law and Government, DCU
