Ruptures in the American Psyche

This book describes destructive populism and large-group regression as exemplified by Trumpism, the strong allegiance to former President Donald Trump in evidence among a sizeable portion of the US population. Michael J. Diamond uses the lenses of American history and culture, psychoanalysis, political theory, social phenomena, and unconscious group dynamics to explore the conditions that have led to Trumpism. In examining illusions of unity, utopian fantasies, and the overemphasis on rational thought, he presents approaches that may attenuate the potency of the nation’s destructive elements and strengthen the containment of its inherent tensions.
