The rise of the alt-right alongside Donald Trump's candidacy may be seem unprecedented events in the history of the United States, but D.

Enemies of the State offers an informative and highly readable introduction to some of the key developments and events of recent American history including: the fear of the Communist subversion of American society in the aftermath of the Second World War; the rise of the civil rights movement and the "white backlash" this elicited; the apparent decline of liberalism and the ascendancy of conservatism during the economic malaise of the 1970s; Ronald Reagan's triumphant presidential victory in 1980; and the Great Recession of 2007-08 and subsequent election of President Obama.
