“Molefi Kete Asante has established a pattern of writing Afrocentric theory and criticism on all aspects of society. I was just waiting for him to turn his attention to Donald Trump and in this book he has not disappointed. The book is well written, well researched, and adds a new dimension to writing on Trump.”
-Dr. George Sefa Dei, Professor, Sociology and Equity, University of Toronto
“The American Demagogue: Donald Trump in the Presidency is Asante’s important examination of how Trump preaches fear and hatred to control the emotions of the white nationalist community. Asante explores the meaning of demagoguery and shows how Trump has undercut American institutions.”
-Dr. Ama Mazama, Professor and Graduate Director, Africology, Temple University
“Asante has brought his unusually brilliant mind to bear on one of the critical personalities of our era. I think this book will find many younger readers as well as old heads because Molefi Kete Asante is a well-read and savvy writer. He is the most prolific African author of our generations and I just knew he would soon have something to say on Trump; he has nailed it!”
-Dr. Christopher Roberts, Postdoc, Brown University
