The 2016 election was a watershed for the United States. Alberta looks at Trump's victory not as the creator of this era of polarization and bruising partisanship, but rather as its most manifest consequence. When George W. Bush left office, the Republicans had no vision, no generation of new leaders, and no energy in the party's base. In the bloody struggle for the party's identity, the stage was set for an outsider to crash the party. How did the party of family values elect a thrice-married philanderer? And, most important, how long can such a party survive? -- adapted from jacket
