The coming storm : a journey into the heart of the conspiracy machine

Gatehouse, Gabriel2024
Books, Manuscripts
Gabriel Gatehouse's riveting book takes you down a rabbit hole to unpack an epochal shift in political culture that starts in the earliest years of the Clinton administration and reaches a crescendo on 6 January 2021 with the storming of the US Capitol. But that event wasn't the wild finale of a chaotic Trump presidency many hoped for - it was only the beginning. A compelling mix of reportage and personal experience, 'The Coming Storm' gets under the skin of these conspiracy theories to show us a radical new kind of politics emerging, a movement that has coalesced around a loose alliance of white supremacists, men's rights activists, tech bros, and radically disenchanted leftists. As we approach the 2024 US presidential election, and perhaps the most perilous moment in the history of American democracy, Gatehouse's book tells us some dark truths about our present, and provides clues about our future.
