In a searing takedown of the populist authoritarian vision of America, The Terror of the Unforeseen tackles the resurgence of fascism in the age of Donald Trump’s presidency. Through the mendacious exchange of facts for “fake news,” Henry A. Giroux examines the language of hatred that activates neoliberal fascism, complete with state-sanctioned racism, casino capitalism, and fear-mongering at federal and local levels. In this “age of disposability,” Trump’s rhetoric eschewsreason and democratic principles in favor of impetuous politics rooted in bigotry, all to injuriously catastrophic effect. Through protests, strikes, and education, Giroux proposes an international social movement that joins together various modes of resistance to illuminate a democratic renewal, and proves himself once again as one of the great public intellectuals of our time.

About the Author:

Henry Giroux is scholar and cultural critic. One of the founding theorists of critical pedagogy in the United States, he is known for his pioneering work in public pedagogy, cultural studies, youth studies, higher education, media studies, and critical theory. He has published more than 60 books, and is published widely throughout education and cultural studies literature.

Julian Casablancas is an American singer/songwriter and lead singer of The Strokes. He works at the intersection of music and politics. His political philosophies question the economies of capitalist greed and the dominating relationship of political institutions over democracy.
