      Equally challenging and profound, Twilight of American Sanity “joins a small shelf of essential titles—Arlie Hochschild’s Strangers in Their Own Land is another—that help explain why and how the Trump presidency happened” (Kirkus). But, as John Dombrink writes in The Twilight of Social Conservatism, the conservative backlash seen during Obama's presidency is indicative not of a rising social conservative force .

      “Trump isn’t crazy, but our society is.” In this cogent analysis of “societal insanity,” begun before the last presidential election, Frances (Psychiatry and Behavioral Science/Duke Univ.; Saving Normal: Reclaiming the Natural Power, Resilience, and Self-Healing Properties of the Brain, , etc.) explores at length the many societal delusions that have given rise to Trump. twilight (twī′līt′) n. 1. a.

      Stephenie Meyer got the idea of the Twilight Saga because one night she couldn't sleep so she took sleeping pills. That night Meyer dreamed of the whole four books, not one, all of them! Meyer dreamed of the names of the characters one night, then. Of course George Reedy (and Schlesinger acknowledges the debt) has deftly explored this trend (viz. Twilight of the Presidency, ; and The Presidency in Flux, KR, p. ) — Schlesinger even uses Reedy's operative adjective "monarchical" — and Emmet John Hughes in his recent The Living Presidency (KR, p. ) more cautiously but very ably Author: Arthur M. Schlesinger.
